Depends on how long you gonna keep your car. So perhaps consider cost of maintenance/repairs?
That's the reason I chose RWD F10 BMW 5-series. I got mine used and i'm planning to keep it as long as it runs. even though I live in Toronto, Canada and drive quite a bit in a winter (road trips for skiing etc)
As others mentioned already, RWD performs adequately on good winter tires and I personally didn't have any issues with driving my RWD F10 during snowstorms here in Ontario/Quebec.
