You're correct but that generality is completely overshadowed by the realities surrounding BMW's turbocharged inline six engines and their terrible reliablility as compared to their naturally aspirated V8s for example.

As far as the talent of the engineers being irrelevant? Give me a break. The financial side of the business can set the objectives and targets...
I stopped reading because like the other guy you are not getting the point at all. The best engineers in the world cannot do squat unless they are given the resources to do so. If you don't give your team of world class engineers the money to design a reliable product, then the product will indeed suck ass every single time. Truth.
