Same thoughts. Sad, but very likely. Half their new cars are to fill some market "gaps", mostly which we never knew existed. When a company starts to think this way, you know something's wrong in the higher ranks. Furthermore, half their cars look downright obnoxious. The elegance and beauty is gone out the window - don't know where they get their yuppie designers from (the same goes to others too - Lexus, Acura, Infiniti, MB, Audi, etc.). Not to mention, they get not so good reviews for steering feedback, braking, suspension, even in the new M cars.
Seems like they are going in reverse. They might as well start calling themselves WMB.
