Hey so i really want to buy a 95 5 series but i live in minnesota so i really need the AWD. I'm pretty new to the whole BMW thing, as you might notice i drive a subaru. Is it possible to get a 5 series in an all wheel drive that isn't a wagon?

Not in a '95, not in north America. I know a guy who had a Swiss 535xi...in Switzerland.

With a set of snow tires my E39 is pretty awesome. Depends on how much snow you get. If you're not running snows, a RWD with snows is a safer bet than an AWD with all seasons.

do you happen to know the first year that a 5 series was offered in an AWD in the US?
