My point is that BMW used to build amazing street cars to meet the rules of racing and win. Now they choose races with loose rules and bring cars nothing like the one we buy and turn around and sell us models that have nothing to do with racing other than the sticker on the dash.
I don't get this, the FIA have pretty much cancelled any and all racing series where they use a homologated road car. The last car BMW made as a special for racing was the 320Si for the BTCC and the like, these specials are no longer needed so BMW and every other manufacturer doesn't make cars like the Sierra Cosworth, Lancia Delta Intergralie, Toyota Celica GT4, Peugeot 205 T16, Holden Commodore SS Group A, Nissan GTR (the R32 was a homologation special for touring car racing).
