Snow mode is absolutely useless in snow. The tyres still spin, and you go sideways, just slower than you would normally. The last time I used snow mode, I had to leave my car parked up for two days until the snow thawed and I could move it again. This is not a car to drive in the snow.

My Is300 spins its wheels on white lines when puling out of junctions, or on slightly rough surfaces, or on slight inclines, or on slightly damp roads. You get used to it, and drive accordingly. 

It's fun to drive, partly because it's so prone to sliding.

Yes, this is not a car designed to drive in the snow, but the button simply limits the power to the wheels to assist driving in the snow if it is possible.
