Driving a powerful, rear-wheel drive sports car like the BMW M3 in a blizzard isn’t something we’d recommend, but if you have the skills, it can be quite an enjoyable experience.
YouTuber Tedward is the proud owner of an E92-generation BMW M3 and when Boston was hit with a blizzard, he decided against locking his car away in a garage; instead, he opted to drive it and appeared to have quite a lot of fun doing so.

The E92 M3 is powered by a 414 hp, 4.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 that sends power to the rear wheels. While the car was available from the factory with a six-speed manual transmission, Tedward’s car has the optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that does make things a little easier. Nevertheless, a rear-wheel drive sports coupe with more than 400 hp probably isn’t the first car you would choose to drive in these conditions.
In his video, the YouTuber mentions that his M3 is sitting on a set of Vredestein Wintrac Pro tires that work wonders in the snow. Evidently, he also has a lot of snow-driving experience and is able to effortlessly powerslide through corners. When driving on the highway, he mentions just how important it is to drive with a very light grip on the steering wheel, allowing the car to gently slide rather than trying to resist even the most subtle of movements.
