Why would i sell the only BMW that received any praise on my little list?

The fact of the matter is, BMW made it's name selling small, quite nimble and relatively inexpensive cars. This philosophy will just not work when scaled up a segment or two.

Subject to change when the new one comes out, perhaps.

I don't hold out any hope if their latest work is anything to go by: They already had a hatchback and then decided to draw up a bigger one, had a couple of beers while making our cars and decided to design a slightly smaller hatchback than the bigger one. Lovely.
