I drive mine all year, every year in NH. Snow wheels in winter. It gets around. Had some issues in 6 inches of unplowed snow up hill, but my car is lowered about 1.5 inches. It was fun.

Holy sh*t. That was really close. That's why my M stays in the garage until spring. I drove my 540i 6-speed year round. Couple of people sliding into me did it for me. No more winter driving. My TL 6-speed is a beast in the snow.

I'm in the same boat. I had mine out 2 weeks ago when we had that warm weekend. Went for an hour long drive. It felt nice just going through the gears!

I keep buying mods to pacify me through these months. Lol. Sitting in a box are camber plates, wheel spacers, and ss brake lines just waiting for spring.

Even though I'm driving mine through the winter I'm doing the same with hoarding new mods until spring. I have a Stoptech BBK, KW sleeve-over kit, carbon rear diffuser, carbon trunk lip spoiler and new exhaust tips all waiting to go on. I'm getting pretty anxious.

I have been driving my 08 E90M3. It can't plow 8-12 inches of snow but if the roads have been driven on, it can get around. Looks like we have another foot coming to southern NH.

I drive my 08M3 and 08 535xit. We got a foot of snow and temps as low as -15F. I alternate cars when itís this cold to keep the batteries fully charged. Amperage is way down when itís below zero. 535xi can get through stuff the M3 canít due to ground clearance and AWD. Both run snow wheels.

Itís borderline terrifying but still fun when no traffic is out there. Had an interesting sideways commute to work in Portsmouth area Friday morning. I havenít put winters on yet due to some southern road trips I have planned.

MW E93, super charger enjoyed the cold air and I respected the previous ownerís winter package option.
