Advantages of 4WD other than bad weather/bad road condition performance

Getting a new car. Have narrowed choices to Lexus RC, Infinti Q60, and BMW 440. All three come in RWD or, for $2500-4000 more, 4WD. Living in San Diego, I don't have to deal with bad road conditions or bad weather, which are the two scenarios I associate most with benefiting from 4WD. What other benefits come with 4WD, and do you guys think they make 4WD worth the extra money? Thanks!

Got jumper cables backward. Sparked and sizzled. Should I try again?

Trying to jumpstart my dead car. Thanks to a mislabeled battery on the donor car, I hooked up the jumper cables backwards at first -- a couple of brief contacts (sparks), then one for ~30 seconds, stopping when I noticed a low sizzling sound. The donor car was not cranked, and starts up fine after everything was disconnected (and the mistake discovered). Is it safe to try again, or have I done (or will I do) dangerous damage to either car? [more inside]
