Agree with others, with a good set of winter tires you should be fine. If anything the issue would be ground clearance. However, this would impact the 335is as well.

I don't (yet) own an M3 but past vehicles have included BMW 530i, IS350 and M45. All were the sport models and with a winter setup, I never had an issue with driving in the elements.
