E90 Xi Vs E46 Xi

I currently have an 04 330xi 6 speed..I was wondering if the awd system on the e90s are identical to the e46s and if they have the same failing points? (axles cv joints etc). Are there two differentials also or is this the electronic system?

The AWD system is all new in the E90 and an AWD system cannot exist on a car without having two differentials so there are two. That being said an AWD system is more complex than 2WD so many of the same issues can occur.
