This is one of those things that are a matter of taste.

Both with dinan flash.
Which would you choose?
550xi Dinan is faster because AWD gets the power down better.
But a rear wheel drive car can be driven in a more entertaining way. Speed vs. Sensation. This is why Ferrari has stuck to only RWD in it's mainstream sportscar line (355, 360, 430, 458).
Also if you get RWD you need better tires to ensure traction on starts. My car will be running Michelin Pilot Super Sports within days of arrival.
