I have been a BMW fanatic for as long as I can remember..I am 25 and have had E30s, E36, and now an E46 coupe... I have loved each one.. I have also driven one of just about all other series.. My worry is that BMW use to be this exclusive company that was ok with the idea of making the Ultimate Driving Machine for those who knew what that meant and knew what they wanted specifically in a car, and now BMW is tailoring their cars to every imaginable market out there.. In just a few years, we have seen an overwhelming surge of new models, that to a lot of BMW lovers, don't make sense.. I am referring to X1, X4(?(, 5 series GT, 1 series sedan(??), 2 series, front wheel drive models to come!? (please noo..).,and the one that hurts me the most: 4 series...!... Why on earth would BMW take its beloved, most traditional and recognizable models and change its name!!??? The first thing anyone ever thinks about when they hear BMW, is the 3 series.. The 3 series accounts for over 40% of ALL sales. So why is a marketing advantage to mess with that? If it aint broke, dont fix it...The only reason the 4 series is happening because Audi, for the first time a few years ago, introduced an A5 coupe...Ever since Audi's sales matched BMW's, nothing has been the same.. Let Audi be Audi.. Despite my confusion and concern for my favorite automaker losing its heritage and tradition, I will remain loyal...I have strayed in the past to different cars such as Mazda and MINI...though both great cars, they did not even resemble what I feel in a real BMW.. BMWs are Amazing machines indeed... and even though I hate the new 4 series name....Oh my goodness is it good looking.. =) I may have just opened a can of worms, but I certainly like feedback Happy Holidays PS.
