True but the segment looking for more sports than the new Ms is very thin and there are no better alternatives at the price point. Not a big risk/loss in the head of a bean counter. In 2010 you got a very good sports sedan for about $50k ( 535i with sports pkg. ). To get close to the same sports feel today you need to pony up close to the double for an M5. Ouch.
