I plowed about 2 inches of light to moderate rain with my car yesterday. Needless to say I had it under control.

I used to think you're crazy, but now i can see your nuts...


What snow tires are you running to get enough grip in the back to plow that much? Any extra weight in the rear?

I used to like doing that too with my 328 but now when there's a lot of snow it's into the wife's e46 325xi. About 4" last night and I had to really work to get the DSC to engage. Even with used snow tires the grip was amazing.
