YES, well put !!!

For each Xdrive sold, BMW's profit increases by well over $1000 per car ! It's no wonder that they and their dealers PUSH Xdrive and try their best to convince folks that they NEED Xdrive.

BMW has done an outstanding job marketing Xdrive, so much so that almost 90% of 3 Series ordered in Vancouver are now specified with the Xdrive option.
