This.

I've got no problem with BMW or any other brand building what it needs to to sell in certain dominent markets....i.e China, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the World has to put up with the shite vehicles that China wants...

Now, if BMW were to build a smaller performance SUV type vehicle, with half decent off-road capability - and less reliant on electronics, I'll put my name down for one
I'm thinking shorter wheelbase two-door X3 with mechanical diffs and N55
