You don't need xdrive for what looks like 1 cm of snow! If you have trouble, it's your tires that suck.
People (me included) are driving all over the mountain with rear wheel drive BMWs and as much as 10 inches of snow here in Norway.

-Gloss black kidney grills
-Gloss black roof and sunroof wrap
-Rear spoiler painted white
-N55 stage 1
The car is very smooth. Almost too smooth and too quiet. It may need an exhaust and intake but will hold off for now. (or I can just pump some engine noise into the speakerds...lol) Also, may need a short shifter.
