Mein Auto: 2007 328xi
Anyone offer thoughts on whether winter tires are necessary?

Sounds like most of you are picking up RWD models, but what about AWD?

I'm getting a 535xi in January, planning to drive through Bavaria/Austria.. sticking to main roads. Sounds like by the letter of the law I should have them in Austria, but does anyone think I'll really need them with X-drive & all-seasons (standard 17")?? I live in CT and have never had a problem in the snow on my 328xi with all-seasons.

Thx for the input.
