Why wouldn't an m3 be drivable in snow?

Pure GQ - My car is a daily driver / beater... why garage it? :P

windsor - Unfortunately it's not an M3. The pic was taken exactly one year ago, last November when we had a heavy snowfall (then it all melted). How I managed to drive it in the snow was... very carefully.

I think the springs settle even more now, this pic was from like Feb or March, just slapped on the springs then.

My current car in winter mode is the S4.

My old car in winter mode is the RSX. (The summer pic shows you how low the car really was; and yes, I was a ricer.)

Both driven all year round, commuting from Toronto to Barrie and back daily!

Where did you get your Viking Snow Tech's from?
I have those on my e36 and they are INCREDIBLE, I can't emphasize that enough.

Want a set for the e46 on 17's... tough to find them though.

but that your summers are still on! i hate seized lug nuts:(

Justin e36
11-23-2006, 08:30 PM
Nah that was before I had seized lugs.. .I didn't even buy my winter tires by then. When my lugs were seized I had winters on the back w/ Type44's, and Summer's on the front. Can't beat the reverse staggered look in the winter.

This is the same rim/wheel setup I had until a truck shop finally got the lugs off:
car featured has wing and sedan to coupe body conversion...
