My mom has a 540i with snow tires its still not fun to drive in snow. its a heavy vehicle and all the weight is not on the drive wheels. if your looking for a luxury car good in the snow DEFINATELY go with audi. My buddies S4 will still pull you intp your seat in 6 inches of snow.

i prefer rear wheel in the snow, much easier to control, and its easier to push than it is to pull...
