That lease is now $808.00 on a 2008 650 convertible as of 12-31-08, so probably not considering the same car six months later.
#20 of 20 Would snow tires/wheels on a 645 Coupe make it drivable in Chicago snow?
Feb 02, 2009 (10:19 am)
I am considering buying a used RWD 2005 bmw 645 coupe for use as my primary vehicle. I have indoor parking and would only drive it minimally in winter (20 mile commute to work comprising 7 miles on moderately plowed roads + balance on highway). I would fit it with good snow tires and smaller wheels for winter use (don't have problem storing the extra set of wheels in my apt). Question is - how driveable will this rear-wheel drive be in the chicago snow with snow tires/smaller wheels, if I drive slow etc? Would the back keep spinning uncontrollably and would I be unable to start in snow? This is the first car I am buying but it looks absolutely gorgeous so really want to buy it if winter driving is manageable, despite it being RWD. Also I have heard that the traction control (DTC and DTS) would help in winter conditions. Any advice/comments would be much appreciated. Thanks
