BMW has made some strange decisions lately. Today I'm going to tell you my thoughts on BMW's recent moves, why they're so odd, and where BMW should go from here.

Maybe they should take a look at the paychecks the younger generation of - let's say - under 30 year old people cash in each month. and after that maybe they want to take a look an all the other expenses of said younger generation. and then maybe they could take a look at their own pricetags - before options. and then maybe bmw is ready to stick their grill and their tweets up theirs...

My favorite discussion with German taxi drivers from Munich? Dude, why do you drive a Mercedes E-Class instead of a BMW limo? That's the ultimate Bavarian car. They always answer, are you crazy? I want a car with which I can drive 400,000 kilometers in 3 years? With BMW I'd be at a loss; it would be in the shop all the time. But still i hear a lot of complaints about the E-class, nonetheless.

When you own a BMW, you can save a lot of time and money by driving it directly to the car crusher. And not everyone realizes what the "BM" in BMW really stands for.

Here is what BMW should do. Re-release the BMW 2002 Tii, IN ANALOG. Give it modern handling, but make it something you can actually work on yourself. Sell it with an essential tools kit. It would have to be super light. And give it something new for BMW-a unique sound. And give it a carburetor. Make 10,000 of them a with a price point under $50k. The car won’t outperform anything, it’ll have 1970s comfort, you’ll have to get tune ups, but 100% of everything that goes into that car will be aimed at one thing: driver-to-car CONNECTION. Oh, and manual ONLY. Connection is something everyone loves, but tech and electric are the death of connection. People feel connected to their ride on lawnmowers but they don’t feel connected to their golf cart. connection connection connection.

I find the comment from the BMW owner who's broken timing chair destroyed his engine at 79 thousand miles really ironic. My first car was my sister in laws used 1972 Chevy Vega. It made it to 85 thousand miles before the plastic timing gear failed and destroyed the engine. The funny part is that a modern BMW is less reliable, and with a shorter engine life than one of the worst cars of the 1970s. Doug's right, no one cares about BMWs anymore.

Bmw has lost me too. The electric car of amy sort doesnt do anything for me. Im with Doug how in 2001 a BMW made a statement. Even the entry level 325i was eye catching. When i saw the tiny 2 series sedan on the road, i thought it was the worst looking piece of shit, i didnt see it being any different from a Hyundai Elantra or a Nissan Versa

Sony is pulling a BMW at the moment. They're cashing in on the credibility they earned in the late '90s and early '00s for a wider audience. It appeared to work for them in 2015 and the following years, but their recent practices have done substantial damage to their long-term base, turning away the majority of its biggest fans overseas and alienating its core audience in the US. Time will tell how far Sony is willing to tarnish its reputation before their earnings reflect this.

I couldn’t agree more and even the new i4 will only give 80% off charge in 30 mins Kia will beat that with a better looking car almost as fast go further,cheaper and charging in 18-5 mins. I really don’t know what BMW are thinking they can’t invest in design in the combustion car as it’s really only got 9 years left but there heart not in electric

Very right observations! But it happened all over the BMW company. I had my Z3 Coupé (2000) serviced at the official BMW-Headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. And they were polite, I always got an excellent cappuccino. BUT: The work was the worst. They built in wrong parts, they scratched my steering wheel really deep, so they needed to get me a new one, on my X1 they somehow "melted" the right mirrors case. I could write down a whole page with all of this. AND they were extremely expensive at the same time - up to double the price for an oil change in comparison. Once they diagnosed on the Z3 that my climatecompressor was leaking and needed replacement for several thousand Euros (Dollars the same) I postponed the repair - and you know what: it worked perfectly 10 more years!!! It took months to get an appointment and they never found a way to change that over 12 years time. Why didn't I go to another workshop earlier? - A long time they blinded me with their "premium appeal" and here in Germany it's always worth a lot if the car was serviced at a headquarter or official dealer and not just any workshop.

Not sure this video will age well. BMW's are not "cool" anymore but they seem to have a better ev strategy than their closest competitors right now. And they are making some very good cars. Also there was backlash to the big grilles when audi went in that direction years ago followed by lexus and others. I think the new look will age well. Frankly the standard 3 now just looks dull and boring next the the m3 or 4 series.

It seems people are demanding larger with everything auto( wheels, touchscreens, sunroofs) so bmw thought they were onto something with those grills. Problem is the have two while rivals have one and they are having huge problems(no pun intended) coming up with a design solution. On another note all that gesticulation by the presenter was like a jet li movie. I wondered if the exitement I felt was because of the lively topic or kung fu-like presentation. Scotty Kilmer has nothing on Doug!

As a half bavarian that drives a VW Polo 9N with folks that pretty much subscribe to BMWs, I can wholeheartedly say that I do not get it. What started as a spicy 1 series thats a hoot and a holler to drive, and a 5 series that was a quick and sexy ski trip machine became bland bloated crossovers that have never seen a dirt road and probably never will. I will make sure to ridicule them as much as i can once they upgrade to that butt fugly grill that looks like it's trying to inhale the license plate.

They just have to keep making BMWs.. and not try to make what everyone else is making cause we've already got that.. People bought BMWs cause they were different. So you gotta offer something no one else has. You missed your chance with electric cars, so instead of trying to make the best electric car, try making one of the best remaining diesel/gasoline powered car! Or at least that's what I think...
