Winter Snow driving video thread

Wanted to see if we could start a video thread of various 1er's handling winter snow or having safe fun in the snow. If you have driven in the snow and have access or ability to film a quick vid, please do. I think it would be pretty cool for members to see :thumbup:

No video yet, but I have to say the 1er is surprisingly predictable with all the fancy aids turned on. I also have snow tires on, but my experience in the local school lot was surprising.

Of course, with DSC and DTC off, the car is easy to fling around in circles.

Here's a quick vid I found done by tirerack on the difference between all seasons vs winter tires. They are 3 series cars, but it gives good insight to questions on which is better.

Not with a 1 ... I hate DTC even if it's OFF... this thing continue to do is job (ok less than if it's ON) but still do it !!

I'm having this ''warning sign'' all the time



So floored it, wheel spin a couple of second and then this shit (sorry warning sign) coming in ...

No way to do drift at all !!! Something I dont understand ??

Have you tryed turning the system completely off? Hold down the DTC button for 3 seconds. That should get the back end around.

With DTC off i could slide it pretty well on the skid pad (that was sprayed down)

DTC on, forget about it

That's the problem ... i'm sure it's not the driver

(I drove RWD all my life and drift is the only reason why I love winter ...)
