We bought a second hand lexus IS250se-l rear wheel drive for 24k and now is valued on 7k but doesn't drive on snow. Any chance of converting to front or four wheele drive?

There is a AWD version of the vehicle so it should be possibble to convert but getting the required parts might not be easy.

AWD = All Wheel Drive, meaning it is similar to 4 wheel drive.

Parts might be available at the junk yard but you need to check if the body structure is similar between 2WD and AWD.
