This is why I won't drive it in the winter here. Seattle won't salt because it's bad for Puget Sound. The one bad storm we had this winter had the highways jammed up for about 4 days, and the local roads even longer. Since my GTI/snows don't cost me anything but insurance and gas, it's fairly cheap to keep a second car around, and I don't need to buy 19" snows for the M3. If I lived somewhere where they gave a damn about keeping the roads clean (Chicago, Montreal, etc) I might consider the M3 a year round daily driver.
