There's a fundamental question that the M department needs to figure out. Are they going to keep going down the "more is better" rabbit hole? More tech, more power, more complexity, more dealer service, more weight, more money....and less ultimate driving machine. Do we really want what the M5 is becoming, 4500 pounds of tech bloat where we can all debate how bad iDrive 12.0 still is? Call me a purist, but I'll gladly take less of all that....and more of a real ultimate driving machine. What made these cars great once upon a time was their balance, handling characteristics, steering feedback, and power that didn't overcome all of the above. At some point I'm hoping BMW stops trying to build cars for a 0-60 magazine headline, and maybe goes against the trend and gets back to what made them such fun cars to begin with. Now someone get those damn kids off my lawn!
