But any dyno tuning will have to be done on an all wheel drive dyno instead of the more popular 2wd dyno.

Correct. And the numbers will be lower as well due to the added driveline loss.

pros - better in the wet or snow, compensates for lack of lsd
cons - heavier, more drivetrane loss

will the 335xi + XEDE be faster than the 335i + XEDE in a straight line and around curves? The all wheel drive should put the power to the ground and make up for the added weight of the x-drive.

on the launch it should, granted i think drivetrain loss and wieght will alow the RWD car to pass later on, but that could take a while. as for the curves, again im not so sure, it would be damn interesting

Probably not b/c of the higher drivetrain loss with the all-wheel drive, although putting all that new HP and TQ to all 4 wheels would be nice.
