BMW to produce FWD cars

No the Mini doesn't count as a BMW...

Quote:
[The small car] segment is expected to grow further. And we will take advantage of this opportunity. We are exploring the possibility of developing a joint architecture for the front and four-wheel drive systems of these cars. In other words: There will be front-wheel drive BMWs in the smaller vehicle classes in the future.

Honestly, a lot of BMW customers buy the car for its quality and brand image, not for the handling. Just look at Richmond I see girls driving 335i's all the time and FWD is definitely safer for them (and for other motorists on the streets as well!). I was pretty choked too when Mercedes came out with the FWD B-class, but I guess their target consumers for the car won't appreciate the excitement of RWD.

people who buys B-Classes buys it just so they can tell people "oh i drive a freaking benz, what do u drive? a honda? im better than u"
the b class is so shitty it shouldnt even be consider a benz.

That was tongue in cheek. Honestly, a Mini is more of a BMW than a Smart is Mercedes.

what's wrong with the B-class? Nothing wrong with people want MB quality in their subcompacts.

i dont see the big deal anyways, like people already said, not everyone cares about the driving experience.

I rode in a B-class before it was funny. Feels like you are chauffeured around in a bath tub really far off the ground.

I think you can lease a 323i with 0 down for less than 450 a month.. Maybe that's why..
