BMW XDrive

Last week on my trip back to Colorado I got stuck in torrential rain and wind on the border of Wyoming and Colorado. There was standing water all over the highway and wouldn't have made it back in one piece if it wasn't for the xdrive system on my bmw. Granted I wasn't doing more than 20 mph for the entire time until I finally stopped in Wellington for the night/morning. I could feel it shifting power from wheel to wheel to grip the road as best possibly could. I will never own a non xdrive bmw ever again.
