I used to have an old Subaru Legacy which was wonderful in Scottish ice, snow, greasy rain drenched roads and rough tracks. I've just sold my 120k E46 which has spent many a week stuck in the drive because of ice/snow that my wife's Volvo has had no problem with. So, I've just bought a new F31 xDrive hoping for similar dodgy road performance with the added BMW experience.
I've not had a chance to test in slippery conditions yet but do find that the xDrive seems to judder whenever a wheel goes over a step, stone or pothole. It feels like the electronic control is over-reacting to momentary loss of traction on a wheel. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is there anyway of contacting BMW to encourage them to tweak the control laws in the software?
I bought the adaptive suspension too - my wife (who hated being a passenger in the E46) likes Comfort mode - and Sport gives a really worthwhile improvement in overall handling.
