What BMWs would you buy if you had the option to own four of them to match the four seasons? The choices should be based on the following criteria: best usability for each season, best handling, safest and most fun.

The choice is strictly personal and I don’t expect everyone to be on the same page, so I’ll start with our own four choices – which oddly, are not what you would expect.

1. Winter – BMW M135i

Some would choose the xDrive model, but I prefer to have fun in the winter.

With snow on the ground, the 1 Series is possibly the best choice for some drifting. It features a 320 horsepower engine, an M-fine tuned suspension, more than enough ground clearance and it is definitely fun to drive in wet, snowy and icy conditions. It is also smaller than other bimmers, allowing you to traverse those roundabouts with ease and hoon around the parking lot without drawing too much attention.

Just don’t forget some good winter tires.

2. Spring – BMW 2 Series Active Tourer

As an outdoor kinda guy, I love cars that offer plenty of space and comfort, and a decent driving dynamics. BMW’s first front-wheel drive car, and a minivan,  the 2 Series Active Tourer, offers ample cabin space, great visibility and headroom thanks to the FWD platform. You can also fit lots of your sports equipment in the boot or on the roof, making it the perfect transport car.

It also comes with xDrive so you can easily traverse any potential muddy roads.

3. Summer – BMW M4 Convertible


The choice is obvious here. The highly praised performance coupe from the Bavarian car maker offers a unique blend of daily utility with performance oriented settings. The retraction of the roof is perfect for those sunset drives in the summer or during the day under the sun.

Just don’t forget the sun lotion.

4. Fall – BMW 650i xDrive Gran Coupe

Another obvious choice! The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is a luxurious and sporty gran tourer. It not only offers great performance, but also an upscale interior and a comfortable ride setting for those long road trips. Space for four passengers, great cabin tech and premium features are rounding up the ideal package.

What’s your choice of four BMWs?

    Spring- Z8. Classic looks and topless motoring paired with that great V8 and six speed. The only BMW vert I really like.

    Summer- i8. Stunning design and the perfect ride for summer events.

    Fall- E34 M5. Because it’s my favorite M5, and you gotta have something with that trademark I6. And it’d make for a great ride for winery hopping and laid back cruises to take in the scenery.

    Winter- New X5M. Loads of power, AWD for poor weather, plenty of room for skis, sleds, etc.
