M235i Xdrive Or M2

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I live in Edmonton, Canada currently drive my 135i year round, I am thinking about upgrading to the M235 xdrive, my opinion a better car for the Canadian customer if you plan on driving year round. Now the question is get the 235 xdrive now or wait for the M2? a couple sites are saying the M2 could come with an xdrive option. Anyone else here about the M2 having xdrive? I donít see them having a M2 xdrive option, if they did I would buy one in a second!!

Being a fellow Canadian, I understand the appeal of xDrive in our harsh winters. Now personally I find RWD and winter tire combo is good enough, given it's my personal setup right now. Facts are however, that a XDrive car will be better than RWD. How much better and whether or not that difference between the two is worth it is totally up to you. If you've grown accustom to your 135i's RWD dynamics in winter, a M2 should be no problem for you (it'll actually be better due to the added LSD). However if you need the AWD traction, the M2 will not be for you.

M2 pros:
-better driving dynamics
-better track performances
-will look more attractive (subjective)
-more fun

M235i XDrive pros:
-greater safety and capability in winter
-probably better fuel consumption
-lower cost to purchase as well as cost to maintain
-available right now (vs. a wait time for M2)

If you can wait that long for the M2 (with a winter tire setup) and the extra cost is not a concern....M2
