Good point. I am just now noticing that conceyted's tires are all-seasons. The M-Sport Line that I'll be picking up is supposed to have performance.

If I was taking delivery of an all-season tire equipped car in winter, I wouldn't bother with winter tires
. With summer tires
, however, I'd pay the extra for them to be swapped pre-delivery - its hard to forecast the weather accurately more than a few days out. (Personally, I prefer Europe in the warmer seasons).
Regardless, I can't wait to get my X1 out there and have some fun
