Hey, I'm all for BMW making another small, light, roadster - though I agree, FWD isn't my cup of tea. Then again, I also prefer 3 pedals, and we all know BMW's view on that.

I remember the backlash before the first BMW SUVs came out, as well as the hideous looking GT cars. As long as some of that money being made goes to M vehicles and future super cars, all the better.

For me, as long as BMW keeps making cars like the 1 Series M, M3, and the M5, I don't mind things like this either.
