Garage isn't heated yet but it's attached to the house, so it stays around freezing during the night. I use a battery tender so no probs starting.

Drove my car few times with PSS in snow. Not fun at all.. It was terrifying really.
Do yourself and others a favor..Get a winter set or park it. I know Chicago does a good job with cleaning the road after snow bu there's no need to put u or others in danger.

Driving a car in snow with summer tires that have no tread? Know it's dangerous but it's fun? Huh? I'm not sure I understand what you're saying but I can't follow the logic of putting other people's lives at risk...

wow! First snow drive... not fun!

I drove my e90 m3 zcp today in snow with summer tires... never again!!! I had about 4-5 near crash experiences and got stuck several more times. Dangerous is an understatement. Keep in mind I took delivery of my car a week ago. I also bought a used 270M wheels with Michelin pilot alpine pA4s from another member here. Woke up today with 1-3 inches of snow so I decided to drive it to tire shop nearby to put the winter wheels on. That was not to bad, but when I arrived they told me I need the wheel lock keys, which of course I had not checked for and was not delivered with the car. So I had to drive 5 miles, including highway drive, to the Bmw dealer to get the key (they have the master key and can sell you a key). The highway was ok... the on and off ramp were crazy: I slid all over... got stuck a few times... had people push me a couple times... it was just bad! Thank God for the DCT transmission on D1 drivelogic; it starts the car on 2nd sear and keeps the rpm below 2000 the whole time even as you climb on the gears. Great piece of engineering... I'm certain it would've been worst with a 6 speed (I drove a Boxster s before through winter with winter tires and know what it takes but DCT was much easier).... Pressing the M button (Turning off the DSC) also was helpful. In the end, my car now seats outside in with winter tires and it will sure be easier to drive now, but I've been on craigslist all afternoon looking for 2-3k F150 for the winter... I just wanna be able to take the M3 out periodically in the winter... daily would be too worrisome... even when I was going ok today, I was afraid of others hitting me!... btw sorry not sure why the pics are uploading sideways

Know the feeling Star. Obviously used to snow driving but simply refuse to take out the M3 on Summer tyres, dangerous. Also have the Alpines (PA3 I believe) on 270M, totally different story and good fun, even if they aren't judged as "real" Winter tyres.

You know, they have these things called taxis.....

BTW pretty sure your insurance will void your coverage if you are in an accident on summer tires in the snow.
