I would also predict that residuals could be considerably better and probably even more than the initial additional cost.
Demand was very good for my A3 TDI quattro, which I was told was because there aren't too many good AWD versions around. Told not many people "ticked the 1,500 quattro box" and demand outstripping supply. I paid 28,000 for it almost 3 years ago (it had a list price of 30,000) and i've got 15,000 part-ex. despite expecting to get 14,000 if I was lucky.

Could well be the same with the 3 series xDrive. In 3 or 4 years time when I come to get rid you'd imagine that as it doesn't have the RWD that puts so many people off it could really enhance it's value.
