Took delivery of my X3 28i in September. 700 miles. There is some lag but nothing that is too different from my 2006 330i and 2008 328i.

In summary, the article points out that AWD offers better handling/cornering grip than RWD, therefore providing better and more confident cornering. But, it states that RWD is more fun to drive.

Engine is the same. But an engine with "standard" parts around it vs "upgraded" parts will make a measurable difference in overall performance.
