I keep hoping the 5gt will just go away

but it doesn't
You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

^ not the right outlook...

I hope it will do well, weather you personally like it or not, if it does well, then maybe BMW will spend the cash to develop other "niche" vehicles. If it does poorly, maybe they wont...

I would love for the 335d and X5 diesel to take them, but they wont- I'm guessing it will be the Golf-esp TDI or the Prius (UGH) for the car and the Honda for the truck, they just seem to fit these sorts of contests
