You've just hit the nail on the head right there. My friends and I were talking about this at work today too. Sucks that every car in BMWs lineup is getting the American Makeover (ie getting bigger and bigger every year). I understand the need to offer comparable products as Audi and Mercedes, but it'd be nice if they could lighten the //M division and not forget their roots completely.
