I have a 330ci. I have driven it i the first snow storm we had after sandy, I think it was. Did alright, lost a splitter, but didn't get stuck. Then again they didn't project 10-16inches either. But ill probably get all my stuff done today and park up the car in the garage

Sammy my home town is 5 hours south of south Vermont, where we are going should be getting 2ft as well, I haven't driven my e46 in the snow yet either but from what I gather just leave your dsc on until it starts to interfere too much, then just switch it off
