4 wheel drive!!

From the BMW press release:

Innovation: new models with the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive
The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system is on the advance.
The number of models benefiting from permanent and variable power
distribution to front and rear wheels, providing them not only with a clear
traction advantage but also giving them more driving dynamics,
continues to rise. The optimised networking of the computing units of
DSC and xDrive permits an even more precise response to changes in
driving conditions. The BMW X5 and BMW X3 come with xDrive as
standard equipment. The system is also available as an option for the
BMW 5 Series and for the Saloon, the Touring and, for the first, for the
BMW 3 Series Coupé.

Could we see some 4 wheel drive action on the new M3?? May be needed to maintain a competitive advantage over the RS4.
