I just got the M3 late last spring so I haven't had the experience of driving it in cold/snowy conditions. I had an 06 330i for 4 years before the M3. I ran the 330 on the stock 17's with all season tires in the winter. The rear wheel drive for the most part handled well, but occasionally on icy roads or in deep snow it was pretty difficult. I have never had dedicated winter tires, so I'm hoping/heard that they make a big difference. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

No beater for me, Minnesota winters are usually just extremely cold with the occasional snow. I'm thinking the M3 will be able to handle the light snow pretty well. '09 X5 is a pretty nice beater though haha
