They are nose heavy, huge pieces of shit and they do great. I have been in my M in those conditions and my car performed great as well.

If you have the means and desire to have two cars, good for anybody who does (seriously). And, yes, an AWD car with snows would have better traction under acceleration than a comparable RWD car. Personally, I like having one car that can handle anything, a snowstorm in the mountains or a track in 100F heat. Just don't say that the M cannot be driven in severe winter conditions unless you have actually experienced it yourself with the right equipment (tires).
Do you check out what I have on my car, with the drop and molded front I wouldn't have been going anywhere.
