I neither have winter tires nor (in D.C.) a lot of snow. Having said that, I'd say the 335d gets a C+ for snow manners. Brakes are fine, pulling away from a stop is fine, but driving at speed and...

They have a Russian guy there who is their diesel expert -- and Stefan gave me a quote (a bit high actually) of $1,796 for carbon cleaning. So, yes they do diesels, and they do CBU for the 335i...

Might be CBU -- or you hit a regen, or tire pressure, etc. I did that same drive (no a/c) and got 39 mpg. Lots of D.C. traffic has dropped my lifetime average (30K miles) to around 30.
