e90 Xdrive or not?

Been looking at e90 335's and have seen a few in 6speed manual and with Xdrive.

How do people feel about the Xdrive in terms of driving experience? I don't plan to do any track events but love the RWD feel, but also want the extra confidence when there is a foot of snow outside.

Also, are Xdrive cars prone to any other issues, besides having extra diff to maintain and extra cv boots?

With good winter tires you should not have a problem with the rwd. XDrive just makes the car heavier and harder to work on. I would only suggest it if you lived in an area where the snow is ridiculous.
