I'm looking for how the m5 suspension handles minor potholes and snow.
I've got an e36 non m. It was great with studded snows, I had chains for it but never had to use them. Now that I have the m and tein basic suspension components, the car is like it 's on rails and a blast up the canyons but now it gets stuck in it's own shadow and rides like a cattle car. I was streetable with non m suspension.
As I look to the m5, having never driven one, 1) is it too sport to use at all in the winter and 2) is it too much hp to have any fun up the canyon.
My question on 2 comes from driving a 400hp vett and I couldn't find a place around here to get out of 3rd gear.
It should have an lsd and room for chains if I got into something in the mountains.
i don't mind replacing inner and outer ball joints or rear bushings. As you stated, those are wear items.
They just got a used one in at a local dealership I'll try out. I'm sure that will answer my questions. It's too high priced, rough, and not my color combination but at lest it'll give me a feel for what it is.
