xDrive is an extremely underrated HUGE boost to the driving experience IMO, including handling, speed and more.

Folks will challenge this post, but I've drive both ad nauseum and xDrive rules in almost situations IMO. Worth the extra $$.
My '10 E90 M-Sport 335i was an xDrive. I loved it. The car made me feel very comfortable in inclement weather conditions.

That being said, the steering on my RWD F30 M-Sport 335i is unquestionably better. Far less prone to understeer. My old E90 xDrive really had a tendency to push wide into corners under hard acceleration.
