The availability of xDrive with four different engines is certainly good news, and a step in the right direction, but it's a bad sign that BMW stopped short of including columns for these in the option tables (320i xDrive, 328i xDrive, 335i xDrive, and 320d xDrive).
Similar brochures for the F10 5 series and others INCLUDE columns for the xDrives. My point is that if these four F30 xDrives had their own columns, BMW would have to commit to which ones were available with manual transmission.
Come on BMW, don't let your loyal manual-transmission customers down!
