The F30's success is critical to BMW and allows them to produce niche vehicles for performance enthusiasts.
The F30 made the 10 Best list but you would prefer it didn't because it's attracting the wrong types of buyers.
You'd prefer that BMW sell less F30‘s so that they don't have the resources they need to build the cars you actually like.

Never again anything larger than a 3 series sedan.
