Thanks for the welcome. The car's really growing on me.
The X-Drive should come in handy for winter - snow tends to lock in by the end of October and stick around until early April. Having something to keep me out of trouble on the icy roads will be nice although RWD and winter tires would have been OK too.
nice, what's going to be the first mod?
I also just got an 08 535 xi and I dont know if its just me but my car slipped in the rain about three days ago. Is tjat x drive really good or not really?
