I have a 328xi 08'. And I was just wondering if it was possible to drift it?
Do you have any tips for me or a process. A video would be nice... thank you.

I think you need a couple hundred more HP than you have to make that happen in AWD car thats relatively heavy

Sometimes. The new Nissan GT-R can, but thats because it has 500+ hp and has variable yaw control (can make more power to rear), so it can get the back end loose.

Yes. EVOs and STIs will do it. Though not at sane speeds on the street in the dry.
I'm sure your X will too. Just need to figure out how to upset the chassis at the right time then hold the drift/slide: clutch kick, hand brake....

Whole point of the XIs is to have an insane amount of grip. Why drift it?

i can get my x3 sideways in the rain with NO DTC or DSC...
but it's not easy, smooth, or impressive...
now i bet i could slide the hell out of a 335Xi
