i think some more info on what u want in a car would be helpful..
obviously all subarus romp through the snow, are reliable and fairly cheap to maintain...great cars. if your looking for a faster tweakable car that can handle snow ive seen some awesome eagle talon TSi 's which you can get without breaking the bank. or a mitsi vr4. my buddy had a TSi with 4 studded snow tires, which could handle the breck season no problem, and was a blast to drive. dont waste ur time with audi, i got a cheaper a4 and while its sick, you'll break the bank just keeping it running regardless of what u can find one for.
You are gonna need to tell us a bit more.
Do you want to go car or truck?
How important is quickness?
How important is space?
Does it need awd? Where do you live? How much snow does it get?
Do you want mad interior comfort? Like leather?
Does it have to look sick?
Sedan or Wagon?
So many things you need to tell us before we can guide you...
