That is why YOU have insurance on your car I am one that LOVES to drive my vehicles, everything can be replaced or repaired and with a car that someone really cares about, all the body/rust issues WILL be repaired.I will keep mine in the garage, to many crazies out there with minimum insurance…
"Awesome" might be a bit of an overstatement. A 500 hp rwd sedan, even with the right tires, is going to be acceptable at best, especially if you've driven AWD in the snow.The M5 is awesome in the snow if you have the proper tires. My wife drives her M in the snow with great confidence.
Having driven an AWD Audi allroad and B5 S4 through a number of Northeast winters, I can tell you that they were better at getting moving, but the M5 handles better given its near 50/50 weight distribution. The Audis understeered horribly, and getting on the gas just made you hit the curb faster. I can steer with the throttle much easier in the M5. One of the car mags did a comparison between front and AWD variants of the same car and found the non AWD cars were better in the snow/ice in everything except getting moving."Awesome" might be a bit of an overstatement. A 500 hp rwd sedan, even with the right tires, is going to be acceptable at best, especially if you've driven AWD in the snow.
For what it is, I'm sure the M5 is ok in the snow, but it's all relative.
