I tried a few things during the recent heavy rains we have been having in Toronto. The combination of traction control and tire design work well with the 328xi. I can stop on a dime and accelerate somewhat aggressively without alot of spin in most cases (with DTS disabled.).
It was a nice little bonus to owning an X I found. My last bimmer was rwd of course and I had both a set of winters and summers, needed the winters!
The michelins that came on the X were a wet/dry tire so not aggressive either way and do excellent in the snow with the awd system. Making true snows completely a waste of money.
