BMW has no legacy to live up to. It is a for-profit business.

You're a little late to the party. The 3 Series is bigger, longer, wider, softer, and more comfortable because that's exactly what its customers want it to be. BMW makes a Roadster and soon a 1 Series Sedan for those Andretti's who miss their E36's.

Trying to make the F30 into something it isn't and then criticizing it on those grounds is weak. It's a $50,000 German luxury car that can be de-featured and stripped down to a $36,000 grocery getter. Its not for enthusiasts.

I think BMW customers want it to be both (sports sedan and larger luxury sedan), but physics keeps getting in the way. Dang you physics!
