Not to kick off another RWD vs xDrive debate but surprising point on how he says the RWD they tested is .4s faster in the 100-200kph test due to "drivetrain loss" in the xDrive. Didn't think drivetrain would amount to that much of a difference.

What you have to take into account is that the RWD did not have any MPerformance Parts. The rear wing and all the winglets cost some time from 100-200.
And the RWD was on a 19/20 Set Up.

Big fan of that exhaust. Love seeing it.

Wish the canards were larger to match the other aggressive m performance parts.

BMW is motivated to increase their ASP by making xDrive seem like it has zero drawbacks.

Neither does the xDrive in this M440

Drivetrain loss, weight etc. we all know the trade offs with AWD. Honestly I love my X-Drive, but if they didn't offer it, I'd be perfectly happy with RWD too.
