+ 1 I agree, I have my lexus GS for the winter with all seasons, shes been pretty good to me.

Plus driving the E93 in the winter is also not good for the rubber seals and mouldings in the roof and as per my shop foreman at the BMW dealer, they can detoriate over time at such extreme temp's creating windnoises, creaks, water leakage...etc etc.

The BMW warranty only goes to a certain extent to take care-off windnoises so dont wanna end up with those problems!

FYI: for those who are leasing I wouldn't care, but since I bought my car out and keeping it for a few years, I most certainly would like to take care of it and avoid salt at all costs
