Question BMW to offer AWD in 3series???

On my way home from work I'm listening to the radio. I think nothing about the commercial playing till I hear the magic words: "All Wheel Drive". Then I hear it's a commercial for BMW. It seems the BMW is going to offer AWD on their 3series carsas well as the x5???!!!??? What !?! Seems everybody is jumping on the bandwagon now!?!

BMW offered an AWD 3-series in the late 80's. The 325iX.

Thumbs up

Yes, they are. As in the late 80's and early 90's, BMW is again jumping on the AWD bandwagon. I understand that there will also be a similar offering from Mazda in the 323/Protege' line.

Protege has had AWD before, I used to own one. Pretty nice car, a lot of fun and decent size/feel for a compact.
