Looking to possibly buy a 2015 M4

Heyo, so I'm pretty new to BMW and definitely new to this forum. I currently own an AWD Lexus RC350 F-Sport (honestly an incredible car) but I'm looking to upgrade to a 2015 M4. Currently, I live in Indiana where we get snow in the winter (albeit, not much the past couple of years).

How does the M4 do in the snow? I plan to hopefully make this my daily driver. I know that winter tires can make a night and day difference. How does it do on just all-seasons? I've driven RWD in the past with an old 2005 Mustang and it got along alright on just all-seasons.

Also, what's the "life expectancy" of an M4? The M4 in particular I'm looking at has around 45k miles, which is sorta more than I'd prefer. Assuming I maintain the car properly, would I be safe at this amount of miles? This is a car I'd ideally like to drive for the next 4-5 years without any issues.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated! I apologize if I'm sounding wimpy here, its just when you spend this much money on a car you gotta be sure its right.

Congratulations in advance for wanting to join the M family! I can't comment on how it handles driving in the snow, but I would tell you to be patient and find a good deal on a2016 model with competition package. So much worth it over the base model if you can do it. Good luck!

Welcometo the forum.

Your questions about the M3/M4 winter driving experience and longevity have been discussed at length here in the past. There are also many discussions about buying used.

You should be able to find a wealth of information by searching. I typically use Google to search the forum by including “” in the search terms.

Please PM me if you have any questions.
