I am currently looking at buying an M3, but I need to use it in the winter monthes in Syracuse, NY...does putting winter tires make it usable in the snowy monthes.
But don't even try to be a race car driver in the winter months...snow is snow, and with a car with 300 plus HP, your tail will want to go hogwild if you are too generous on the gas. (Never turn off traction control unless you know what your doing)
Another word of advice...during a winter storm or right after a large accumulation of snow, keep a heads up, snow likes to pile on your front skirt...which in turn can rip it off if its heavy snow, or break your fog lights. (I broke my fogs last winter...)
I speak with experience...I live near James Bay... which is about I would say 15 hours north of you...
Micheline Alpines are great snow tires and the Bridgestone blizzaks are also pretty good.
Any further questions let me know...
