Many of those are quite serious drivers cars.
Not at all, all that tech is designed to improve the cars performance... BMW's current marketing and development focus seems to be on connected drive, internet connectivity, and a whole other slew of other fairly useless gizmo's to get all the tech geeks excited... While they are losing the driver involvement aspect of the cars.

I can't think of one new technology that makes BMW's better to drive than before. More convenient yes, but not more smile inducing.
