That's just bad negotiation skills.

If one consider the cost of snow tires, rims, TPMS and labor, the AWD is actually a couple of thousand cheaper than the RWD
A winter set with Blizzaks and cheapo wheels will run under $1K, and if you know how to work craigslist it'll be more like $500. Besides, you can ignore the cost of the tires, since while you putting wear on them, you're not putting wear on your summer set.

And if I ever have to choose between AWD with all-seasons and RWD with winters, I'll always choose the latter. Because being able to stop without the help of the trunk of a car in front of you is a million times more important than being able to drive up a hill.
