Jealous or something, otherwise, why comment if you are so stoked on your Civic Si or whatever?
The vibe from these 2 articles(truthaboutcars and bloomberg) seems to be different than usual ones, right? Usually BMW press releases and/or journalist meets tend to be marketing hypes and such. Inviting journalists to internal "tech meets" is somewhat unusual, let alone allowing journalists to sit through battle-cry sessions.

But again this can be triggered by spy reports given to BMW brass of actual Model 3 protos that bend curves better than 3-series and have better ranges than i3, and the BMW brass just cannot ignore their own deficiencies any longer .... My 2 cents and hypothesis of course.
