Yes, the weather was the major consideration, even though we barely had winter last year. Aside from that, though, I think xDrive makes a difference with the steering feel, due to it having hydraulic steering instead of the electric steering that BMW now puts on RWD cars. It might be anecdotal, but I think xDrive cars are a bit quicker off the line, too.
