i'm no help bc i just got a 3 series a couple of months ago but still miss my X5. with that said, your post stuck out to me b/c i was actually nervous about driving the car in the snow and how much clearance i would actually in the snow. my X always plowed through everything but reading your post put me at ease somewhat.
