I know you all hate it but come on, lets look at the economic sense here.

Does any posters run businesses that have a money sucking side that show no improvement in performance and lose money?

Look at the bleeding in the automotive market, the current recession is killing BMW.

I think it is great that they are focusing still on other motorsports at least.

Buy an M3 now before they are gone.
So....what about Toyota? Renault? Ferrari? Mercedes-Benz?
they either so stupid to continue compete in motorsport, or they're not selling cars?

Motorsport is a showcase of manufacturers of their capability and also brand recognition and advertisement to the public. That's why many teams like Toyota, BMW, Mercedes-Benz were not happy when FIA did not schedule any races in North America in 2009, which North America is one of their biggest market of car sales.
