interesting.. it might do well. Come on.. there are sports car 5 series type lovers that may want an SUV so we give em the X6. This X1/X2 will appeal to the 1 and 3 series coupe people that want "more space" and a higher ride.

ya what in the world do they need that many suv's that arnt that much differant from each other, i think 3 is to many (if you can call the x6 and suv, haha)

I think it's per year. All I know is that this big fat BMW book/bible thing I have is saying it's the most successful model to date.

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.

ya doubt they have the development budget in this economic crisis to launch another sporty SUV - although the design is striking.

I am sure we will conintue to see the development and evolution of more fuel efficient power plants in existing models though.

This car is going to flop, with the x1 leading and the x6 right behind. Does BMW have a Research and Development division, coz shit, I highly doubt it! The point of an SUV is space, comfort, practicality, size, and of course the operation related side. Not some dumb mini cooper SU-sux!!!

Not to mention that each new car model reduces the economies of scale and raises costs.
