Smile Decision time

I have pretty much searched many vehicles and have narrowed my choice down to either a 335i Coupe with xdrive or a 335i convertible. My wife already drives another convertible and I do love them. However, with the new car being my primary vehicle, I am concerned about handling in the snow. I have no qualms about snow with the xdrive system, but worry about handling of the convertible. Do any of you have snow experience with the 335i convertible? I am leaning to the convertible!

Thx

I've never driven the 335i...but I have driven an e30 Convertible and a 330i in the snow. Get yourself a good set of snow tires and you'll be more than fine. I ran around with Blizzaks on the 330i last winter and NEVER got stuck or lost too much control.

If you are going to drive the 335i in the snow, snow tires are a most. The stock tires will not be much fun in the snow, especially if they are summer tires.

Drive my vert year round. Put snow tires on the stock rims, bought new rims for summer tires. Easy to swap. Biggest issue is low ground clearance, not traction.
