335d with snow tires gives me more confidence than my AWD CRv.
This morning I drove my 4x4 Suzuki Grand Vitara fitted with Winter tires and it had difficulty braking on the street that was icy! The ABS activated as I braked at a stop sign.
I guess it has crappy winter tires that were 3 years old.

In contrast my D with new Hankook W409 performed like a champion when I drove it on ice covered roads.

Current Rides:
2013 E350 BlueTec
2011 VW Jetta TDI
