+1 to all RWD 3-series being special order. By default all BMW dealerships in Canada will have X-Drives as inventory.
Absolute crap if you ask me. The BMW Salesman I visited today (there are many reasons why) said one reason was to beat out Audi and its Quattro offering. Apparently BMW Sales are through the roof since X-Drive took over (he showed me the sales numbers on his computer) - so X-Drive is here to stay for a long time.....
Apparently Audi is also going to get rid of Quattro and are looking to release something to compete with X-drive....(not sure how true that point is.)
