You're being intentionally obtuse in order to avoid being wrong. So far you've said that the "point" of 4x4 is to go off-road and that buying a 4x4, only to drive it on the road is like "buying a dog and barking yourself"; which is to say it's pointless.

Two things you're saying don't make sense:

1) 4x4 and AWD aren't the same thing. BMW doesn't make a true 4x4, but it's besides the point, because there's still a point to owning a 4x4 and driving it on-road only.

2) Just because you can "get by" without it doesn't make it pointless. I can "get by" riding a bicycle, but driving a car gets me there faster, and I'm not all sweaty when I arrive. An AWD car offers an improvement in stability and road holding under all conditions, and is especially advantageous in snow or ice.

That's the point.
