I like my M3 and all, but to be completely honest, the S65 is going to waste in a regular passenger car.

Anyone notice the current headline on Bimmerpost? BMW Q3 income down over 70%. Building a sport version of the M3, charging over $100k for it, and then not selling it in the US isn't exactly a formula for improving those numbers.
Let's not turn this into a discussion on BMW's strategy in general. They'd love to sell such cars in the US, but nobody would pay the price BMW considers to be appropriate.


Best regards,
