I am a new member of this Forum. I have a 1997 M3 Sedan that I seldom drive, and a 328i Coupe that I drive daily. Recently I ordered a 335d to replace the Coupe. It is the basic model in Titanium Silver with just the Satellite radio option. The build date is early November and expected delivery is early to mid December -- the beginning of the snow season in Sentral NY, where I live. We get a lot of snow -- 140" a year is about average.
I have driven RWD BMWs with winter tires in Central NY and New England for close to 30 years without too much trouble. But the 335d's 425 ft-lb of torque is making me a bit uneasy. The car will be fitted with new winter tires and wheels the day it arrives (either W-60 Blizzak or General Altimax Arctic). I would appreciate any advice on the snow handling of the 335d. Cheers!
