I have an Injen and a BMS piggy back chip and the stock sport suspension . As far as exterior I have mtech skirts , forgestar F14 wheels, and an M3 lip. I had it for 3 years already and its been great. Im trying to get some money together for the 335 though.

I had the DWS 235/50/18 in my Cadillac STS V6 2006 RWD in the harsh winter we encountered in 2011 and I must say great tires all year round. I actually felt better driving reckless with DWS than with the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS RFT 16" i have now in my bmw.

lol .. depends how much snow and Ultra-High-Performance-All-Season like DWS and the others in the top 3 will be ok in snow but for deep snow def gotta have the best snow tires.
