I respond,

	I cant believe you're complaining about the winter traction 
in a BMW!!!!=) I have three.  One never gets driven, its an 
original 2002turbo, the other two, a 2002ti, and a 530i get retired 
at the first sign of snow.  No, I take that back, they sit in the 
garage when it gets near 35 degrees.  Thats when I bring out my 87 
5KCSTQ!:)   That gets me through the winter.  Don't even think 
about driving a BMW in winter.  PS  Im looking for a coupe quattro.
