Found a Silver 1998 M3 Sedan 5-Speed about a half hour from my house so I went and test drove it today. It was pretty nice and only one owner, but to be honest, I didnt feel a huge difference between my '97 328i and this M3. Dont get me wrong, the power was there, but not as much as I was expecting. It was completely stock, with 106k, but idk... Anyone else driven both?
awd cars have more grip at launch, thats all that comes to mind.
X-drive is not full-time AWD; it defaults to RWD if there is good traction in the rear. Regardless, you can get a decent launch with AWD, but with the xi's, it is not good enough to give you a better 0-60 or 1/4 mile time. x-Drive is just too heavy, an dthe drivetrain loss is just too much.
