    Hi and welcome to Bimmerforums UK Angel1724, congratulations on purchasing your new car and good luck in the snow if it does come , they aren't great so I've heard at climbing hills in the snow, lots of drifting action which would amuse some no end

    To be honest they are two hand fulls in the snow, but if you have traction control they are a doddle.

    Just take it very easy even when going in a straight line until you get used to your car in icy/snowy conditions.

    Hope its runs well for you.

    Hi and welcome

    BMWs are not good in the snow.

    The trick is to be VERY gentle with steering around corners and also with the accelerator and you will be fine

    I drove an M3 around in some lethal conditions a good few years ago and it was less than fun.

    Downright scary actually

    Welcome in. (don't take the next lines too seriously)

    Get a man to drive and stop worrying about the snow.

    You probably drive better than all the blokes here put together anyway!
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.

    Just remember to imagine that you are on a sheet of ice, and drive accordingly!!! (seriously)

    Use SMOOTH and GENTLE inputs to the steering and accelerator and you will be fine

    if the roads are really bad take the bus

    Welcome to the site and the world of BMW!

    I think we all have fingers crossed for the weather tomorrow - either safe enough to drive, or so much snow we can't leave the house
