Snow and Ice

Really wish my X1 was delivered already... I am stuck driving my SS camaro in this snow and Ice we are getting... should be fun. Anyone else getting this weather? How has your X1 handled it?

Getting sleet/freezing rain here to the east of you. X1 is handling it superbly, so is the 135i for that matter... because they are tucked away in the garage, all warm and dry.

Too many retards on the roads, eager to pirouette down the road on their roofs the moment the first ice pellet hits the ground.

Drove my SS Home from the office. It is tucked away in the garage now. Will not be moving till tomorrow... My fiancÚ is still at the hospital, she has a 135i so when her last heart patient is out and stable she will make the trek home.

It was snowy/icy the last 2 weeks, had great fun with our sDrive X1. Must say it has proper winter tires instead of the all season rubbish, so we didn't had any trouble with grip.

We got 2" and well-frozen streets on Friday afternoon/evening. Took the X1 out and pulled my kid all over on a sled. Kept speed down and traction was no problem. It does quite well on slick surfaces.

Better take out a life insurance policy on that kid.
