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.

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

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

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.
