    Well, well, well, so what exactly are those Journalist who are “stabbing” the hell out of BMW endeavor’s worth?.

    Like i said “one person cannot decide the opinion for the PEOPLE”. The people choose for them self, they know what their money are going for. So regardless of the Critics of those who are plotting against BMW Motorsport, don’t be MAD at BMW and their Sales its the People who are buying them, furthermore its not about whats on the outside that matters its what on the inside (DNA Pattern of Sportiness+Luxury & Track+Street= PASSIONATE ADDICTION).

      Idiot, Audi and MB both outpace BMW in sales growth. MB is currently the best-selling premium brand in the USA, and Audi is the fastest growing premium brand. So what are you rejoicing over, typical brainless BMW lover?

    I wonder how the 5 Series GT is selling…..?Good Luck!

    • Titan

      Such a useless model can’t be selling well, stupid kid.

  • Titan

    Audi and Mercedes-Benz are making progress all the way while the pathetic BMW loses again and again. So go hang yourself, idiotic BMW lover since I was absolutely right when I was saying that BMW is the only useless car maker in the world.
