It would need to be an 335xi, not the 335i. The i can't handle the snow well enough to pull the sled!! If you are going to criticize Canada, please, at least, get your facts straight.

I have the Continental RFT's and they are relatively quiet. Not what I would describe as quiet but not at all bothersome or notable. As far as wind noise... probably the most quiet car I have owned.
