Same here, is perfect for a daily driver especially if the AWD can be turned to a RWD with the push of a button and a manu-matic gearbox. It combines the best of two worlds.

That was my rationale as well. The only downside is the increased weight that comes with the AWD system.

^This you can shut it off, but all that weight is still there where you don’t want it. It’s one of my favorite things about the F80 is how eagerly it turns into a corner. Add xyz amount of weight up there and it changes things for the worse IMO.

RWD and MT! I made the biggest mistake in my car enthusiast life by getting my M2 with a DCT. Don't need AWD as I live in Southern California and don't drive aggressively on the street.

On track, I don't want or need the crutch of AWD nor the added weight which of course still be there even if you turn it to RWD only mode. Consumables are expensive

Sold my F90 M5 and got a ‘19 X5 for the family, leaving a spot for a G80 MT. Planning to mod it and take it right to track

The no AWD/MT thing is ridiculous. There is something genuinely special about a powerful, manual, AWD vehicle. I'm in a 2014 MT Audi S4 APR stage 2 right now and it is the tits. The transmission does just fine with ~~475HP and its based on a 7 year old design.

I would say the engineers are lazy but they aren't, they're just overengineering the s*** out of the comfort and convenience side of the M division :/
