Hahaha I like that one...but seriously, BMW needs to up its game. BMW isn't going to beat Audi by making M SUVs. What BMW competes with the R8? Nothing. The TT-RS? Nothing. The forthcoming RS3? Nothing. The S4 Avant? Nothing.

BMW needs to produce:
1) M3 CSL
2) 135tii
3) 335iT Touring

competing with a $100k+ sports car isn't going to help bmw in any way possible

bmw makes their money with 3 series (mostly) and 5ers
the 3 series BLOWSSSSSSS away the a4 in every possible way, so bmw is doing exactly what they want to do


quantity > quality in this case

No doubt. And the 335i blows the A3 3.2 out of the water. I just wish BMW would start competiting in other segments...

agreed, however they are down 22% with sales, so i can completely understand that they are sticking to the high volume sales rather than the more rare M models

bmw supercar........ OMFG it would be the mclaren f1 all over again (no not really haha)

If you compare the BMW and Audi lineup...BMW has a lot of gaps to fill...
And don't even get me started on BMW's new naming system...cause 4 year old can come up with a better system

135> A3 3.2
335> A4 3.2
335< S5
M3> RS4
M3< RS5
535> A6 3.0L Supercharged
550> A6 4.2
M5> S6
M5< RS6
M5 Touring < RS6 Avant
760i> A8 W12
760i < S8
X3 < Q5
X5M > Q7 V12 TDI
X6M > ?
TT-RS > Z4 35i Sdrive
? > R8
? > R8 5.2 V10

BMW needs to produce:
1) M3 CSL
2) 135tii
3) 335iT Touring
TT-RS: The E89 Z4 should not have a problem keeping up with this car imo. The twin turbo version and the TT-RS have a lot of similarity, apart from the price

135"tii": Already got the greenlight

335iT: Exist in Europe, not enough demand in US. Will keep up with S4 without too much trouble.

BMW's in decent shape, considering the way the economy is. But I will concede anyday that Audi has made huge progress

Exactly, those specialized models is not useful to a company during these tough times. While I know the R8 has been a HUGE image boost for Audi, everyone forgot about it as soon as the GT-R came out (not that they are necessarily competing against each other).

The huge model coming up for BMW is the F10 (5 Series). That's really going to be pivotal.

Hilarious ad btw
