Not sure what we have here, yet. In any event, it seems difficult to reconcile all of the sprouting BMW models and what their purpose is (would like to see sales figures and possible impacts on other model lines). BMW seems to be getting away from their performance model in favor of more "Lexus-like" models. Whatever, but all of the BMW lines seem to be getting longer/heavier. This, in light of government requirements to improve MPG. BMW's approach (like many other manufacturers) seems counter-intuitive - witness, for example the F10 being almost 5 inches longer and ?? heavier than the E39. Why?
