That is interesting, I had not heard of that before. As I mentioned I'm fairly sure most xDrive vehicles have open differentials. I found this on BMW.com -

xDrive is regulated by Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and uses information from the latter system's sensors to monitor road conditions. In addition, brake force courtesy of DSC is used when there is traction difference between the two sides of the vehicle and wheel spin is likely.
