Next spring I'm looking to buy a Z4. It'll be my first "real" car. I've been saving up the cash for a long time and now that I have the money I'm starting to think it might not be the wisest idea.

1) Next year I'm moving to Edmonton from Vancouver. Can the Z4 handle snow with snow tires? With lots of snow it'll obviously turn into a plow, but my main concern is packed hard snow in -xx weather. Those from the colder climates know what I'm talking about.

2) What should I look for in the used market km/miles wise? I've seen a few 11/12 models with less than 50k km on the odo. My budget can't handle anything over a 2012 so anything I buy will be out of warranty.

3) Any fellow Canadians here? Any other advice is genuinely appreciated.

Thanks everyone.
Get a set of Nokian r3's you'll be okay unless the snow is really high you'll turn into a plow. You'll feel bad for the car driving it in the winter though.
