Magnus, i have a 325iX
lol wasnt trying to be smart or nothing but 4wd and awd is the same term. The difference in full time or selective is not stated. I know you guys in your side of the ocean call it like that to determine full time and selective but it really isnt like that.
There is also the common misconception that 4WD = Low range and High Range gearing
AWD = Only high range gearing
Again this is not entirely true.
In any case its only three letters and i dont care and this arguement is the same as asking someone in the States and someone in Europe how many continents there are!

"Lo there do I see my father.
Lo there do I see my mother.
Lo there do I see my brothers and my sisters.
Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo they do call to me
they bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
where the brave may live forever"
