There must be some good business reasons and return on investment calculations.
But I wonder how much are the cost overheads for all these different versions, although the base platform remains same.
I'm very curious to see the affect on the resale value and 2nd hand market of these cars. With so many options and versions overlapping, used BMW market will be interesting. I would say the value will go down.
