If you spend all your time in FL, you might consider a RWD version. AWD has a lot of extra parts and complexity.

Also, be aware of problems with the timing chain assy on N20 engines. Failures on some have destroyed the engine. BMW has a timing guide update, but you should do your research on N20 problems and confirm to your satisfaction that the motor is reliable. Engine was upgraded after Jan-Mar 2015 build date.
