Mein Auto: 2014 BMW 535xi GT

Living in snowy Ottawa, Ontario I understand your preference for the x-drive version of the 535 GT. We just hsd three storms in 8 days snd I drove to Pennsylvania during one of them two days after Christmas. I too experienced the GT's excellent performance in adverse conditions. (I have Michelin Alpin winter tires). I travelled at the speed limit in the snow-covered left lane passing many cars and trucks going slower for whatever reason (timidity, summer tires, etc)

They must have thought I was crazy or driving a vehicle that could handle it. I hope they wondered whst I was driving. Never did I feel unsafe and my better half never asked me to slow down. If moved the wheel an inch either way I could 'feel' the road.

mpress, loved your post especially the material at the end. I laughed out loud but it is certainly spot-on.
