With the winter here, the discussion against RWD vehicles is again brought into play, a discussion most Bimmer owners are already tired of.

And while I have personally experienced a near crash with a BMW last winter, I never condemned the vehicle or its drive system.

Fact is that for all the downsides of a rear wheel drive, today BMW produces cars fitted with enough safety systems to keep them on the road just as well as any other car. And two of the more important factors are the tires and driving skills of the one behind the wheel.

Still, the skill of the driver is hard to present nearly in a video, but a head to head against various other vehicles sporting summer tires is a piece of cake. And that is exactly what the next video entails. The E46 BMW M3 is rides on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 winter tires and gets away from a range of other vehicles thanks to the rubber and in spite of the rear wheel drive.
