The problem with winter driving is all the other idiots on the road. Some panic at the sight of the first snow flake and others think they are Tommi Makinen on a rally stage.

If you can afford it, I prefer used small cheap SUVs for the winter. They are cheap to maintain and a disposable commodity. If something happens, scrap it and get another one.

I agree there are a lot of bad drivers on the road. In winter up here in NH, it’s way more SUVs that I see going off the road than cars. While I don’t have much confidence in other drivers, that is not reason enough for me to drive a beater. If the car gets wrecked, fix it or buy another. Maybe if I had been hit 5 times in winter, I would feel differently.

I drove my 95 in Colorado winter for a few years. Actual snow tires and a couple sandbags in the trunk were all it needed.

My Subaru was better when I put snow tires on it, but m3+snow tires > Subaru on all seasons.

Also if you're not comfortable correcting for slides, go find a parking lot after it has snowed. That applies for any car, but especially one where there are no competent electronics to save the driver.

I bought my E36 M3 when I was 17. Daily drove it, cause I didn't have a choice last year. I spent all my money fixing my car. I had Continental DWS 06 on the front and Pro contact on the back 225/45/17. It was fine. I drove it on the snow, it was fun/scary. I learned how to drive. The car wasn't damaged/I wasn't hurt. I guess you can assume it is a great daily driver. In Ohio we get a lot of snow. I took my time washing it everyday. It lucked out since I've got a powerwasher at my work.

As a 16 yo kid I drove a 1969 firebird with snow tires in the snow just fine. It's not that hard.
