BMW cares, or they wouldn't be replacing it. Tell them to let it go.
I just love these guys who have their egos so wrapped up in what they drive that they can't stand it to be criticized in any way at all. Even the obvious weak point of fuel economy.
PS - Now you can go look up the word "peerless".
I wonder why they replace the V8 for a 6cyl since, like you said earlier, they could've easily made that engine more fuel efficient by working a bit more on it instead of dropping the ball like you said they did!
