Plenty of people will like this car as will be proven by the sales figures! Just because it’s not a ‘traditional’ RWD bmw doesn’t mean it’ll be crap... just different! Obviously not for you and probably not for me either (I’ll wait for the RWD G20 thank you) but it’ll sell like hot cakes! And bmw ARE running a business after all...

You are making too much sense. Please stop. It's making my head hurt.

The side badges are a throwback to retro BMWs, not just to add more badges.

So BMW's marketing team have you fooled!! And no doubt it'll work on thousands of potential buyer too... personally I think there is at least some truth in the article linked above!! I still quite like this car though, but those side badges for me are a reason NOT to buy one!

The bottom rung X1, X2, GLA, CLARK, A3, Q3 "premium models" are really poor representations of their corresponding brands...

Yes, those badges really make this CUV capture the spirit of 2002

Maybe it will be retrofitable.. i put a deposit for a X2 since 31st october, but had no ideea about THAT shifter..

Stuff like this has had me wonder a couple of times if the teams responsible for the different models don't talk to each other? Would hate to buy a brand new model and get it with "last years parts"

The red interior looks posh! The gear knob looks horribly out of place, though.

Few days ago, I had an X1 as a service loaner. I drove this loner 500 mi and they were the most uncomfortable 500mi I ever drove. I'm seeing the same interior... too bad
