M5 in the snow?

Was looking at a 535xi but see that m5s depreciate alot. Enough to make them relatively affordable. But I live in the northeast with bad winters. How are the m5s with nice winter tires? My charger is horrible in the snow. Dangerous even!

Mein Auto: none at the moment
Well, it is'nt that bad at all. Once youre tires are right you are as good as it gets with 500bph.

Still a 4x4 is much better in the end in the snow but hey, that one hasn't got the V10 !

Similar situation, considering m5 versus 11 535xi. I am thinking with snow tires it will be absolutelly fine.

I like the 4x4 reply. I dont think many m5s are driving in the snow .Im sure they can ,but why would you risk it.
