We don't get that much snow in the DC/Baltimore area normally, so I thought the WinterSport M3 performance snows would be best. I got WinterSport 3Ds (think it was the update from the M3?) for an...

BTW, good to see you're still around. I haven't read or posted in a pretty long time, and haven't routinely perused the forums in an even longer time, unfortunately. :tsk:

I'm getting a Mercedes E350 wagon because BMW stopped bringing the 5er wagon to the US. That is AWD and I also plan to put winters on it.
