So I guess dbl_trble should write an angry letter to BMW telling them that he will no longer be making the purchase as when he put down a deposit on the car, he was expecting for it be lighter.
O wait, you aren't buying the car (regardless of weight) and not the type of driver/demographic that they are gearing it towards.
BMW doesn't sit and think to themselves, "lets build a car that the masses do not currently want, because dbl_trble and the rest of the Max gang will be fighting over getting it when it is 25 years old and worth a 1000$".
You guys kill me, you really do.
They know the market well, you know, because they spend multi millions on research and that is why Europe gets the fun models, because people there are a different "type" of driver and can see the awesomeness in a LTW or CSL model.
Here(NA), we want status, lots of power and the comforts fit for a god, in a car. (a few of us want a car we can throw around the track once a year). That's what they give us.
