Crazy day of driving yesterday - most intersections were pure ice, I had a hard time pulling away even with Blizzaks and a VERY light foot! Once moving, no real problems, the rear likes to move out, but it's easy enough to keep in check.

Then I got stuck in my back lane, but managed to wiggle it free and finally into my garage. After that, I went to rescue another 3-series down the lane who was stuck as well (took three of us to push him out - lol). Crazy stuff.

Today was much better. Roll on summer! I think I'll get a beater Land Rover or something for next winter. This car is great, but I'm too worried some suicide mother in a minivan will collide with me on the ice.

Lots of mods planned for 2011 .. I'm stock now (except a BMS drop-in and ACS roof spoiler).. black VMR V713s, NT05, JB4, and a aero lip are on my list for early spring to celebrate my first year of BMW ownership.
