As for tech, yes they need more of it.. and not just in the 5 and up.. When a $20K car can have collision avoidance that works with blindside detection and what not, why doesn't all BMWs have these features? Sure Park Assist is nice, but I'd much rather have a Driver Assist + that stops the vehicle versus prime the brakes. Oh.. and Dynamic Cruise Control... what's that? Why not just put in Adaptive cruise like Toyota, Subaru and all the other non-luxury brands seem to be doing?
Please don't get sucked into talk here that the motors are unreliable. It's all BS with no science behind it. It's basically 2 posters with some sort of agenda.
