That's what BMW was good at; keeping cars, even their bigger ones, feeling nimble, feeling sportier than the competition. That is no longer the case. Congrats BMW, you built an AMG, and an inferior one at that. How is that impressive?
The new 3 series follows suit. Have you seen the reviews? Or driven one? BMW is taking everything that made them distinct, and leaving it behind. Other cars are out BMWing BMW.
