I have both 4matic and non-4, and if you don't need all wheel drive, RWD is fine and offers more of a sporty feel so to speak.

Def depends on where you live, Im in Nyc and the 4 matic with the right tires is great in the snow.

thanks for comments. Bought the 4matic as i needed it in case of snow. I have to say the 2wd drove much nicer and 'appeared' to have more acceleration.

RWD With snow tires and you would've been fine. I'm in buffalo and had 2 RWD AMGs and had no probs with snow tires on.
