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.
On summer tires any BMW is a death trap in the snow but I do agree that my rear wheel drive 330i would have too much wheel spin on hard acceleration even in the rain never mind in the snow, that is the major reason I switched from a 2006 330i to a 2008 335xi and now to a 2013 335 xdrive............all 4 wheels hook up instantly even in the rain and in the snow
