M3.. All year round?

Here is my dilemma. My wife has a Porsche Cayenne, and I have a 328xi. My lease on the 328 will be up in July, and I will most likely be doing ED on \'12 m3.
Is it \"okay\" to have the m3 as the primary source of transportation?
Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks in advance

12k miles is enough for me. I'm in the east coast. My only concern is snow.

With a decent set of winter tires, I don't think you'll be worse off than any other RWD car.

It's not going to be nearly as good as your 328 XI for snow though.

The real downside of the M3 for everyday usage is the gas mileage. But if that's affordable, I would definitely go for it.
