BMW = Mini
Mini = FWD
Mini = Fantastic

Therefore a FWD BMW will be Fantastic
I don't believe you'll change your E46, probably the best BMW ever, for a FWD BMW.

BMW had such a brand. It was called Rover and had alot of potential being up there against VW, Toyota, Ford etc. As you can see they failed, and Roewe is now Chinese.

Same goes for Mercedes. And now even Maserati is going the sales direction.
