Guess you never read the article in Roundel about 6 years ago with the then head of //M. He was asked what makes an M car and why there wasn't an X5M or M7. I wish I would have kept that issue since it showed how focused //M was at the time and explained the core values of the //M Philosophy at the time. But who would have known that //M would deviate so far from their core values.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
