I believe every car company goes thru its up and down cycle. I would not be a bit surprise if BMW make a big come back in the next 5 years. I like the current BMW line up design wise, even though its a bit water down performance wise.
I would say that Audi is more guilty than BMW of designing cars that appeal to the masses. The VW Jetta is a very conservative design and the A4 really looks like a fancied up Jetta. My main issue with the A4 was that I didn't really care for the looks. They were too neutral.
