Eco mode = great for snow

Had our first snow in Richmond VA today. Helpful hint to all non xdrive owners, the eco mode is really helpful in the snow. With the decreased throttle response wheel spinning happened a lot less. Thought I would share.

We also have lots of snow at the moment; though I thought I'd never drive in EcoPro, it turns out to be really useful in this kind of weather. Nevertheless, I'm definitely looking forward to the summer months...

I agree with the OP. This is my first long term automatic and putting it in Eco Pro felt a lot better in the snow this morning.

I can confirm as well...eco pro with the 6mt in conjunction with the numbed throttle response and winter tires. Very little slippage even on pure ice once the snow is packed and frozen.

Yeah, same. Definitely! It helps me modulate my heavy foot.
