4 new tires is next thing on my carlist. What brand did you take and how much did it cost?

RWD cars tend to oversteer, causing you to "drift" through corners, and worse = spin out.
FWD cars tend to understeer, causing you to miss the corner and end up in the ballustrade
AWD cars can't take corners as fast as RWD, but they are better than FWD cars.

and best argument of all: with AWD car you can go driving more offroad. Or you can park next to my house with an AWD car, with a RWD/FWD car you get stuck in the mud

RWD cars give the best driving experience
FWD cars give more secure drive
AWD cars are best overall, but most expensive of the bunch.

Those are personal and changes from person to person so it's discussable. And no your opinion = not the same as proven data or always a fact.

so you don't think that it's not a proven fact that moving the driving wheels to the rear so the front wheels do only steering gives the best steering (and thus driving) experience?
so you also don't think it's not a proven fact that FWD a safer drive overall as the risk of spinning out is reduced?
those are not opinions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile_layout those are sentences based on the Pro/Con of facts

if RWD drive is not "better handling" why use them on all pro-racing cars and sport cars?
if FWD drive is not "safer" why use them on all family cars and majority of EU cars?

Experience is stil personal related thus discussable from person to person.
All your explanations are pretty much logic and in general true. But it's still debateable .
let us take 5 cars from 5 brands with al different drive systems, you think the persons driving those cars will have the same opinion and experience?

What if a person defines "the best driving experience" as "when I feel the most secure"?
