Loved our X1 35i. Have owned a few cars with the 8s and the 6s wasn't really any worse.

Have to say that this drivetrain is actually kind of appealing compared to a one wheel drive non M rwd setup or regular X Drive. My DD GTI with a mechanical LSD is actually surprisingly fun, add some power xfer to the rear and it could be quite good. The Golf R foolishly doesn't keep the mechanical front LSD.
