Mein Auto: 2003 5 series
Here's my take...

Even if you think you may encounter snow a few days a year, get the ix, no questions asked. I just traded a 2003 5 series for a new 328ix. Even on flat ground I would have some tire spin. The rear drive BMW's are a death trap in the snow. My new 328ix is a gem. I had it out last week in 3 inches of fresh snow and it stuck very well with the Michelin MXM 4's. When the car arrived it came with the Pirelli P 7's but I had the dealer swap them for the Michelin's. They are much quieter than the Pirelli's and better in the snow. Good luck.
