But at the same time, by doing so they taking cars that were initially intended to be a somewhat exclusive club (and yes by design) and making it so that any Joe on the street could have one. In my opinion BMW's name and reputation will go down the drain. The new ///M line will become more like a civic with younger and inevitably stupider kids owning them. It's sad.........
The only saving grace will be the expensive maintenance. Once the kids realize how expensive the upkeep is, you won't see anyone other than die-hards keeping these things beyond the warranty period.
