I was thinking in switching to a SUV, but I hate the idea of getting rid of the M3.
M3 can be used in the winter easily. It would take more than one winter to see effects. BMW does a good job of weather protecting the car, they tend to hold off the effects of salt longer than some other cars we see. Winter here will speed things up such as chips in the front bumper but as long as you clean your car and undercarriage you should be fine.
