Same situation in Kansas City, it's really hard to find a 5 and 7 with RWD during the winter time. My next car will be a .50i xdrive, having 400/445hp only make sense to have AWD. For .28i and .35i, RWD will do just fine with winter tires. I've seen old mustangs and Camaros on the road during the snow storm with winter tires, they do just fine w/o any traction control. BMW 5 weighs more with 50/50 balance and superior traction control, it's not a problem on the now.
