I really don't understand what the AWD obsession is for. Most cars in the north that are on the road are not AWD, and for decades people have been making it through winters with the proper set of tires on their vehicle.
I will be at least one person w/ a RWD BMW this winter here in NE... with winter tires... and I think I'll be just fine.
You may be...I live on a steep hill and have witnessed many tire and drivetrain combinations fail...including my x5 at one point...I hope this 3 does well if we have any in-climate weather.
