1M is more fun to drive than a RS3 and better on track; manual+rwd vs. DSG+awd, both turbo.
M3 is more fun to drive than a RS5 and better on track; manual or DCT+rwd vs. DSG+awd, both naturally aspirated engines.

BMW should keep those above and other similar "facts" in mind instead of doing what others do. This is like they are looking forward to giving up on brand's strengths, absurd imo.

Performance cars are not meant to be driven by people who can't drive anything even on a straight line, you can't produce a sports car and define "everyone" as the profile for your target market. These cars are not supposed to be show only, they should merely show what they are capable of doing and that's it.

Or I am a relic which may well be true as well
