Well u know what, to each his own!
I think maybe some of us are in a position to have multiple vehicles throughout the year!
Why should one drive the M in the winter, when you run into these probs:
1. Ground Clearance
2. Higher Risk of Accidents (Some jackass hits you!)
3. Salt/Rock chips on paint
4. Cant drive the the M hard! the way its meant to be like in summer
The Porsche turbos are AWD!
and FYI I drive the 760, Lexus GS in the winter. Infact prior to that I drove the 745 in the winter too!
The M with good winter set of wheels probably handles well, but I rest my case for the reasons mentioned above
And the M is no supercar but even supercars are driven in the snow and this is what happens
