I fought the the A/C in my 2017 540i for three years. There is day & night difference with the A/C in the 2020 X5. No matter what the data says, the user experience is very much improved.

I would submit that the resale value on the AWD will be higher by more than $2,000 compared to a RWD. Most people are looking for AWD in SUV's these days. In Florida, not so much.

I am going from a 540 (2017) to X5 (2020). Depends on personal driving comfort, the 540 should be a little smoother ride because of the foot print and suspension. The X3M is in my opinion a rough...
