One consideration to make is that if this is a daily driver, you will need real snow tires. Personally, living in snow country I would not own an M as my only daily driver. It is just too risky in regards to the other drivers trying to go too fast. And don't forget about a lower car that may high center in deep snow and one that can't have chains placed on it without a change of wheels/tires.
I would personally look to have a spare set of real snow tires for any rwd vehicle, just as my wife has for her e39.
