I" would not opt for any xi variant from BMW unless I lived up north, but totally agree with one of the other knowledgeable posters on this forum (is it you?) that a great set of winter tires is the answer."
Yup, that would be me. I had a set of snows for my E39 and the car was awesome in the snow.
"If I could have any wish, it would be to couple the new twin-turbo six with my e39SP. Might not EVER consider parting with it."
I posted the exact same sentiment a month or two back. An E39 with the new twin turbo six would be an absolute PERFECT car.

Thanks...I think the extra weight of the 328xi might give the ride a little more of a 5-like ride experience.
I drove a 335i coupe when my '03 530 was in for service. Very fast but felt a little light when pushed - at least to me (and I know what that can feel like since my other car is a 2006 MX-5). I think the extra weight in the 3-series x models might be a good thing for ride compliance/stability even though straight line performance is sacrificed.
I want to drive the new 335i convertible for my next test drive Speaking of extra weight.
