Winter tires. In my personal opinion, should be damn near required for any car you DD in the winter. My e46 just blows my previous FWD cars out of the water (or snow, in this case) with winter tires. The only thing I would change if I could would be ride height in the winter. Well worth the ~$400 for a set of Winterforces or Blizzaks.

Background - Drove ~15k miles this winter alone. I would not have taken any other vehicle for the job.
E46 323i Sport/5 speed | 243k miles

E83 X3 3.0i M-Sport/6 speed | 130k miles
E39 530i M-Sport/5 speed | 237k miles
