Lowered+snow

I need some opinions on what I should do. I have an 08 fa5 and I wanna get the koni str suspension kit and it's about a 1.5in drop. My question is would this much of a drop cause me major problems when it comes time for snow? I already have dedicated snow tires so I'm all set there just would like some input on this subject.

A 1.5" drop isn't too crazy for any area that regularly plows the roads. Basically you'd need 4" of snow on the road for the body to be dragging and at that point the car will be way out of its element no matter what the ride height is.

Lots of people around here drive with sportline and some with skunk2 springs all year long. I live in Quebec, Canada... I'm dropped on prokit so just about an inch and it's really no problem. Of course you gotta watch out for ice blocks but if it hits, would've probably hit at full height.
