Women. At least that's why I own one. My wife had a 135i before, but got spooked anytime the stability control came on, or if I had DSC off and the car wasn't going straight. xDrive is great for taking the fear factor and fun out of rwd. Pretty much exactly what shouldn't happen to real M cars, as you said.
