The 2005 BMW 325XI is an all time AWD. 38% front, 62% rear drive. When there is wheel slippage detected via the ABS system, power is diverted to the correct wheels and braking is done all automatically.

I am thinking about getting a 2001 330xi awd and was wondering about its handling in real snow conditions. I drive 20km each way in some pretty treacherous conditions so wondering if this car would meet my needs with snow tires.
