M3 XDrive ??

I'm wondering what other M3 owners think about BMW making a M3 with XDrive I personally think if your making a high hp car you should have XDrive on it for traction.. What do you think ?

I'm all for making it an option... but I wouldn't tick the box.

I don't think they sell enough M3s for that to be an option in the future. Obviously as a consumer the more options the better, but I picked my M3 over an RS4 mainly because the AWD didn't do anything for me.

Agreed... came from an Audi - don't need or want AWD.

The next M3 will have big torque and this creates a dilemma. You will need AWD for proper traction, but it will kill the dynamics and steering of the car that make the M3 a benchmark.

Porsche does AWD quite well. In a head-to head against the M5, the Panamera GTS was found to have better steering and responsiveness. I am even impressed with the steering/dynamics in my Cayenne GTS (for an SUV, of course).
