MDM mode in winter

We haven't received much snow as of yet and I'm running winter tires. However, the traction control seems to come on all the time when I push it around corners on the street.

How much more of leeway will I get with US MDM on? I want to try it but I'm hoping for some input from members here with experience. Is it same as just driving with DTC on the 335?

Find some empty parking lots with fresh snow and get a feel for it. The M3 obviously has a variable-lock LSD out back which can improve poor weather performance.

Best advice I can provide is to of course drive slower in the snow.
