Since our choice involves V8 M3 and we've heard that production is scheduled to end sometime in June, then that's a factor. Fact that snow tires are required up to mid April seems significant. We realize that weather is totally unpredictable, but seasonal trends count for something.
Just avoid Italy south of the Alps after June and you'll be fine. Bring jackets and keep the top down through the Alps!
