You guys are overlooking the fact that the engine is only one of the components that BMW does well.

BMW is not looking to sell any handling, suspension, x-drive or other secrets. Engine wise- everyone seems to have a 2.0 L turbo engine, so why not share.

it makes sense to collab with hyundai. in short span of time, they have brought out for the masses more new products & engines than any(?) other automaker. since nissan is sharing tech with mercedes, there's no one left in japan with anything exciting. honda & toyota have been milking the crap out of their tired-ass engines for the last 10yrs yawn... i can't believe honda is thinking of strapping another v6 with electric motors for the next nsx. is it that hard to put two K20 motors in a vee with d/i & strap it longitudinally in a modified original nsx platform? they no longer get it...

That would be a bad move for BMW.
