Problem is BMW is not Porsche. BMW is no longer the Ultimate Driving machine. They are taking a different path and I dont expect it to change.

I will be interesting how many put their money where their wallet is and get a P car over a new M3/M4.

I bet far fewer than the bitching we are seeing. The car will prob be fantastic and nobody is gonna care once they drive it.

Sorta like the GT3 getting no manual....
