They cannot rely on old business. We are better off WITH a BMW than without.
Of course they need to adapt with the shift in consumer tastes, but they went overboard. When supposed driver-oriented models like the 2/3/4-series and Z4 have been getting lukewarm reviews since 2012 you know something is very wrong.

We can agree to disagree, it is what it is. What I know for a fact is that driving an E9X side-by-side with an F30 or G20 is a depressing experience.
