This will be my fifth winter with my one.

I love it, not as fast as a 4wd on the start, but once I get it going I have no problem passing others even in the snow lane, but don't forget to hit the DTC or you are going nowhere. It drives like a snowmobile, except all in the comfort of a cabin.





and this is after a 7h hours drive in snow, slush, salt.

Hey IEDEI, I think tritonx has stolen your crown for "dirtiest winter 1er". Better step it up!

Haha, awesome! I just washed mine and realized it's going to need a good detail this spring.

Great! Haven't had any issues at all. We're having some FREEZING tempuratures right now though. As low as -60°F windchill yesterday morning. Tomorrow we have a high of -2°F. Thank God for heated seats.

Kinda is, I hate winter and driving the 128i in the snow is the best thing I enjoy about it. Thankfully it get to sleep in the heated garage and got cleaned the same day.

Great pics. I used to love playing in the snow when I lived in Minnesota and drove a Mazda RX8 year round. With a set of winter tires, it was a surprisingly good vehicle in the snow due to the low end torque of the rotary engine and the 50/50 front - rear weight distribution. However, it was a bitch to start after sitting outside on bitterly cold days, lol.

Loving the snow pics. As long as it's protected from the elements, you'll be able to enjoy that car for years!
