Americans aren't that stupid. The know that there's really no such thing as a "People's" BMW. That's what Civics and Focus' are for.
Shows the difference in other markets. Over here in the UK the smaller powered BMWs sell in far bigger numbers than the bigger engine models.
We are even getting the smaller output 2.0i engine as a 520i in the F10 5-series. Will make a change to all the 520d 5-series.
How about a 316i? Just a humble 1.6 litre with 136hp, in the F30. That is on our specification list over here.
