2011 BMW M3  [0.00]
Chicago has had an bit of ice and snow. Since this is my first winter in the m3 I just wanted to post my feedback. Like every BMW I do/have owned, winters are installed. The one thing I can say is the LSD makes a huge difference in driving in the snow. I had a 375rwhp 1990 mustang(w/ LSD) in high school and could drive that thing sideways all day long. I have read the "I had the DSC off threads" and was always cautious. I can say this, the M3 has no issues in the snow and is very easy to control. With both rears driving, you can easily control the car with much greater precision than a std rear. I spent hours upon hours over the years in 545/550 in the snow and it was unpredictable. If you have a M3 and your worried about the snow, don't be(as long as you have a good set of winters)

The DSC was off during the inspiration of this thread
