Im still on the fence regarding the gear stick..... I dunno, the button selector works but I much rather if it had a normal selector.....it still feels a lil vague to me.

Garage
When working out of snow, I sometimes have to rock back & forth a bit. It seems much faster & easier with a gear lever. Otherwise it is just about having a place to rest my hand while driving.

I like the push buttons. With AWD and studded winter tires, I don't have to rock back and forth :-)

So far so good country guy.....we really have not had much snow to put it to the test...the only ONE reason I would like the stick over buttons is for rocking a car back and forth...the electronics buttons are decidedly slower to engage a back and forth motion between forward and reverse gears.
With that said, I considered two important facts tho....(A)
Im dealing with an all wheel drive powertrain and (B) high quality winter Michelin ice tires....Im sure the combination of both will get me unstuck if need be...
Not sure what your temps are today country guy,but where I am it's reading -27C...last night for the first time I actually plugged in the block heater when I drove her into the garage....hopefully it will keep the oil from turning (thickening) into (almost) grease! LOL....it's pretty cold up here!...That's additional strain I do not wish to add to my oil pump and oil galleys!
By mid next week, I'll feel confident taking my Can Am on Rice lake for an extended ride....nothing grips on ice like a set of 4 overly aggressive tires that Can Am comes with! been in some pretty deep mud bogs in the summer and checked it out over Rice lake, and both instances, it blew me away at the traction it has, weight not withstanding being an 800 lbs toy...They usually post ice thickness and safety information once weekly on lake ice conditions...not sure who does it,( OPP maybe) but it's a great way to educate the public on the dangers of driving on thin ice!
Have you plugged in your block heater in the C country guy?

Out here in the country it went to -32 C last night....up at the airport it was -39 C with a windchill of -47 C....BRRRRR! Nope, I have not plugged in the block heater. My car is parked in an insulated but not heated garage. It does not get that cold in there. The only time I have plugged in my cars is when I know it is going down into the low minus 30s and I know I will have to start the car at 7 am to go to work. I don't plan on going anywhere today or tomorrow and it has already warmed up to a balmy -19 C :-)

You couldn't pay me enough to go out on the ice...I don't care how thick the ice is. Just this past week a snow mobile trail grooming machine went through the ice on a pond and sunk to the bottom. Fortunately the driver was able to get out of the cab with no serious injuries.
