Like many on this forum, I am very close to buying my first BMW. I live in
the North and snow is an issue. I am thinking the 325xi with it's AWD
would be the better car? I'd like some opinions. The year I'm looking at
is a 2003 or 2004 because it still has some of the original warranty and
if you buy from a BMW dealer there is also the Certified Series which
gives 6 years/120,000kms warranty....
Am I on the right track???
I've posted several times about AWD and my 330xi experiences; search
the archives (using google) for them. There was a very recent post where
I discussed some aspects.
Buy snow tires and you'll go anywhere.

I have a 2002 325i with sport suspension. I use 4 regular snows on steel
wheels in the winter and the car is fantastic in the snow thanks to DSC. I
would not waste the money on 4wd, which comes with a weight and handling
disadvantage that is not needed in the non-winter months.
