I kind of agree with you here.
But the shopper I was in 2002 is not the shopper I am today.
I wish there was one car for me, but there is not-I need two.
The cars I wanted in 2002 would not be the cars I want for my DD today.
In 2002, I did not care as much for a DD and the compromises those cars made(small back seats, bad gas mileage etc) meant less to me at 22.
At 33, I am in a different place. BMW now makes cars for me at this time in my life.
On the flip side, if I were to replace my toy and not my DD, BMW does not sell a single car I would consider.
