While I agree with you, you have to understand that BMW is trying to offer luxury comforts while trying to keep the car 'light'. BMW isn't offering you a Sports car. More like a Sport Luxury Cruiser. You can fit 4 people comfortably, and you have everything you would need. I had a Cayman S on order before I got laid off but the point I am trying to make is that BMW is trying to make a luxury cruiser extreamly sporty...while keeping the luxury. Everything else that's really lightweight can't do what the M3 does on a day to day basis.
