BMW will learn like every other Car manufacture which gets a head of steam in sales. Every car company goes through this explosive growth in sales, demand is great then "It happens"..... Something derails the train and the company has to take a look back to see what happened and correct. All the big ones have had that issue. GM, Ford, Mercedes, Toyota. It is just a matter of time before VW/Audi/Porsche has a hiccup and BMW. The person who drives a BMW for what it is, can see what direction the company is/has gone in and i can only think that BMW will get its wake up call (not when you have record sales) but when your sales drop. Then the Brass will all get in a room and try to figure out what happened. Then they will have some BS campaign about "bringing BMW back to the classic ultimate driving experience"
