I did that a few times with my E46 years back. As long as I don't jump the curb it's all good! But still I wouldn't want to run into anything with any car..

My winter beaters....

In indiana




At home in NY






This picture was taken last night when we were hit with about 15 inches of snow in Westechester.. My sisters s5 was too low too get out of our garage so I resorted to the beaters beater





Not going to lie I usually use my sisters s5 or our a4 at home but for the first time I took out our crv and it actually did very well in the snow. Suprising

Yeah we all own m3s i'm pretty sure we can occasionally mess around and make some threads for fun that are semi relevant.. Specially if its about winter beaters. Its the cars that are keeping our m3s safe and sound through all the salt, congested streets and snow. I think they deserve a little appreciation =)
