There has been a lot of comments on manual transmissions disappearing in favor of automatics, but my gripe is that all I see on my dealer's lots are xdrive models. I don't need 4 wheel drive, don't want to pay for the extra gas that they use, and certainly don't need the added traction it provides in bad weather. I understand why some might want these things, but why is it that when I search dealer inventory for an sdrive X1, I can't even find 1 in the state of Connecticut or in Western Massachusetts? Seems like the only way to get one would be to order one. The same holds true for 3 series cars all are xdrive except for the convertibles, which are 2 WD only. Does this make logical sense to anyone? Am I the only one left who wants 2 wheel drive, and good old rear wheel drive?
