Not only will you be able to get going, you will also be able to STOP and STEER better then any SUV on the road.

Hi everyone,
I live 45min west of Chicago... So far I think we're at a foot of snow. Well, here's the deal, my wife drives our E34, and decided she could make it to work this morning. She did. By 4pm, I went to trade her cars, I have a Dodge Caravan as co. car, so we traded.
As additional background, the car has 15" all-seasons on it for the winter, brand new Dunlops. The 17s are stored. Anyway, trying to take off from a stop, rear-end kicks out, trying to stop... not as bad, but still tough.
Now I know if I had dedicated snows like Blizzaks or something I'd probably be a little better off, but still, this car is dangerous.
Anyone else slippin & slidin?
Just wanted to share my misery with someone.
Thats all for now.
Rick
