I agree with pretty much everything you're saying. I agree the 3 and 5er are bloated (but competition is forcing them to do that). I agree the 1er is amazing (I want to get one myself). But I do think that BMW is starting to have too many different kinds of cars for small market segments, and at some point, these segments start to overlap.
