Almost no one looking at any BMW cares about that either, but are you honestly going to tell me you would be fine with BMW not paying attention to those things on the other models? I mean why not if no one cares? See that is the problem with letting a company slide on its standards, it will slowly creep through the line up.
And I just want to touch on the first part of your statement even though it was not directed at me. I too own an E46, but I would hope that BMW is listening to me. This is because someday soon I will be looking for a small, sporty, RWD 2-door, so as a future customer BMW should listen to me. Just because we drive an older BMW at the moment does not mean we are unable to or will never buy a new BMW.
