I am gonna pull the trigger on a 3.3 Sport and I live in California. Is there any reason to get the AWD version of this car?
It’s really how you intend to use the car that will dictate RWD vs. AWD. It’s not all snow or inclement weather either. AWD does a fine job on dry tarmac to help pull you through a turn (you can get on the throttle earlier, giving you an advantage), and as CoconutRob stated, you can turn off stability control and the AWD system will send 90-93% of the power to the rear so you can drift of induce oversteer.I am gonna pull the trigger on a 3.3 Sport and I live in California.

Agree. I went through a lot of snow in CT with AWD but now that I'm in FL. next car will be RWD. I don't use the heated steering wheel here.I live in Michigan - in the snowbelt, so AWD is a requirement to make life easy. But, if I lived in a southern climate, I would favor RWD for the weight savings & simpicity- all things being equal. Until very recently, I paid a penalty from most manufactures (Audi being the exception) in the performance packages offered in AWD variants of sports sedans.
Let be honest, you'll be stuck in traffic no matter what the weather is like!I live in SoCal and my RWD seems to grip just fine. I don't think its worth the extra money to get AWD in California. Nobody here knows how to drive in the rain so you'll be stuck in traffic when it rains anyways.
