    I have just ordered a 550i/manual with sports package and I'm having some concerns about winter driving. I still have a couple of days to change my order if needed. I will be moving to Harrisburg, PA and have heard that they get a fair bit of snow..... should I be ordering the 535xi instead. I owned a 2004 530i w/spt and did not have much fun driving in Kansas winters....I did not have snow tires and I know it makes a bit of a difference.

    - How much of the handling capabilities will I be giving up by getting the AWD as opposed to the 550i?
    - I have ordered the 550i w/active steering, since I had it on my 530i and enjoyed it. Does the heavier 550 need it as well?
