Does anyone out there drive there M3's year round? I don't care much about the area's where there is no snow. I am having a tough time deciding, if I should just throw on the hockey pucks, and run it through the snow. I would clean it from road salt, etc., so to preserve the condition, but I am having a tough time with the decision. B.T.W. , my car has NO rust anywhere on it, and based on the underneath of the vehicle, has never seen any snow. My car is really clean, but not perfect. 132K. Overall a good example of an ORIGINAL paint M3. (never painted on) I have driven it in the rain, and bought the car as a daily driver. Should I drive it in snow or????

I do, and haven't had any real difficulty or problems. It actually handles snow pretty well, all things considered! I would recommend using real snow tires, as Lee recommended, and be sure you wash off the salt, etc frequently!! A couple of years ago here in CO, they started using MgCl on the roads, which leaves an oily residue all over the car, especially on the backside, so if they use that where you live, you'll have to wash it often. Other than that, I have never really had a problem unless its really deep and they haven't plowed yet!
