Why BMW doesn't make FWD

I think these pictures are old but it's the first i've seen them. Unfortunately FWD BMWs are on the horizon

Yes, and imo that is perfectly fine. Premium brands need to be wary of brand dilution and hurting the "image" that they've spent tons of money and time building.

The perfect alternative is to have a cheaper sub brand where they can offer things like FWD
