My E83 does just fine with 6MT and Nokes. YRMV
For a daily driver like most of us, most AWD will do the job with good winter tires. I dont see the point climbing a mountain with my X3

My XDrive + Nokian studded Hakka5, is pure enjoyment in winter

Actually, there was a Volvo XC70(new model) beside me at a red light, he also had nokian tires. But when he left at the green light, the Volvo AWD system seemed to work very oddly, almost like it was a FWD, I was kinda surprised how weird it worked. I punched it, and left him in the snow....
