Limited options Bmw 4 series x drive
 
Who wants a rear wheel drive in Pennsylvania?
I was very interested in ordering a new bmw 435i x drive. But I read online on the order guide for bmw 4 series that 6 speed manual
And sport and m sport suspensions only available in the rear wheel drive models. Bmw is not competitive with the Audi a5 or s5. I'm very disappointed in the new 4 series. The options are very limited to only the rear wheel drive.

BMW girl, I acknowledge your point. Federal testing regulations make offering each combination prohibitively expensive, so we often aren't offered all of the marvelous drivetrains BMW manufactures. BMW is better than most carmakers when it comes to still offering manuals though!

My suggestion is to purchase a rear wheel drive 435i and find a great set of snow tires. Have you tried rear wheel drive with good snow tires?
