Hmmm. I beg to differ. The RWD will handle better in the sense of a true BMW suspension/weight, etc., dynamic.
Unless you mean "in the snow."
Hey, it's winter time. When summer comes around, who cares about x drive. In the meantime get a pair of cheaper wheels and mount some snows on it for those few months. Or get chains for that rare time. Or throw some sand bags in the trunk.
fwiw, I drove a much, much lighter 2002tii for years in heavy snow country. You just learn how to drive a RWD in snow
