X Drive and dry traction?

I used to own an E90 335, and it would lose traction, alot. TCS would come on all the time, pretty annoying.

With the X Drive models do you find when you gun it or handling in general is better with 4 wheels pushing the pavement?

Also what are my options for better\tighter suspension, I like OEM parts so I guess I could just purchase OEM sports package springs? Or would M5 springs work?

I came from a e90 335rwd so I know what you mean about losing traction all the time.

I have a 535xi now and I don't notice it handling any different but you never lose traction in this car.

As for suspension order the car with the dynamic damper control DDC and the most popular springs are ACS, Dinan and H&R (in that order)
