I think you are reaching now, the 335i AWD with Blizzaks can probably drive circles around your RWD in the snow
We just had our 1st major storm here in New England yesterday, about 10 inches. My wife was driving her 328xi with oem conti pro contact. It handled it fine. On one stretch of the way home, we were behind a old Subaru, the front of the Subaru kept sliding sideway everytime he try to stop. If you RWD guys mean that AWD with the inproper tires such as the Subrau is dangerious in the snow, then I agree. Tires are one of the most important factors in snow traction, a RWD with a bald set of snow is just as bad.
