Your title is an oxymoron.

Have a second car to drive on snowy days. Traction in snow is less than 0.

Garage List
The big key is having the right tires, with a good set of pure winter tires such as the Bridgestone Blizzaks, any BMW will be fine in the snow with care. I personally have coilovers on my car and its dropped all the way to the ground, but with the winter tires, my car outperforms my friend's SUVs with ease. Remember, 4 wheel drive means nothing if your tires cant grip the ground, so tires are by far the most important thing you can do for winter.

i was afraid this was the case. i cant have my cake and eat it too!
i guess i have to stick with the audi products. their quattro system is really unbelievable in the snow.

thanks for the advice.
