I recently bought a new 2004 325xi and I'm looking forward to the winter weather here in the Washington, DC area which can be rain, sleet, snow, and ice all in the same storm.* I've been very impressed with the all-wheel drive capabilities of the xi in rainy weather.* No slipping or sliding whatsoever in the corners of turns.* I've tried to get it to slide but the car just refuses to play along with me.
I've also got a Ford Explorer Sport with all-wheel drive and it handles well in winter weather but since it's an SUV it's top heavy and slides a bit.
Enjoy the 330xi and all the skiing this season.* I'm planning on coming to Vancouver in early April 2005 for a conference.* I'm planning to extend my stay so I can ski Whistler/Blackcomb a few days.

Did you order manual or auto?

Hi!! How are you? Guys, why do people buy the normal 330i's when they can get the 330xi's for a little more? Is the acceleration on the xi a bit slower? How slow is it?
