    If they made a 'light weight' hard top xdrive, then I would have bought one. AWD is awesome.

    Nope, 6AT. I love manuals, but I do too much lazy driving in the city/freeway. Plus my girl can't drive a stick(Shame on her)

    That is the other thing that kept me from manual. It handles the power but there is some tuning peculiarities that had me thinking.

    XDrive is nice but just so harsh on bumps and downpipe install is just too much work for a diy.
  9. I have an xDrive with manual (N54 tho). xDrive and winter tires in PA is like cheat codes. Very fun to lay into the throttle and just put power down. One thing I noticed is that with TC off, there's no post shift bog. The few times I've gotten it right it scared me.

    Full disclosure: I just have a "stage 1" Cobb OTS tune so my HP is relatively low compared to most others out there.

    What exhaust are y'all running? I have the BMW PE mod done to my stock exhaust but I want something a little more aggressive
  12. I have a 08' Pre-LCI 335xi

    I would absolutely love DPs but, the only place locally that would install them for me is asking 600$ in labor..

    I would do myself if it wasn't the XI but... BMW + AWD + Twin Turbos = ..... :O... :D

    Did they change the way the downpipes are designed on the n55s? My n55 didn't seem that difficult to install -- unless I just got it done for really cheap at my shop
  14. I believe that the N55 RWD and AWD models use the same DP style
  15. Love my xdrive, except in the summer it's a waste.

    I've pulled the transfer case fuse before it it becomes lots of fun! =RWD

    F30 N55 x-drive here.. I get sad in the summer but the fun factor is increased significantly in the winter months here in New England.
  19. Yes! Another Xer :)

    Glad to see more of you guys here! How do you like the N55 Engine?

    No issues at all here. I upgraded from a f30 328 x-drive to the 335 and I couldn't be happier.
