Interesting question :-) Three things: Number 1: the network of dealerships and repair shops is terrible Tyler Kim's answer goes this direction, but I think the situation is even worse than how he described it. I've bought BMWs and brought them in for maintenance (scheduled check-ups plus minor body-work) in two different countries. And it was horrific in both. In Italy, they had promised delivery by end of Feb. I got it in May. But the horrible part was that I tried to reach the sales rep who was handling my case by phone (I left tens of voicemails), by email, etc... and he kept dodging my calls. When there is a delay, you PROACTIVELY reach out and apologize, you don't dodge calls. In the meantime, I was receiving kind, non-pushy and friendly calls from Mercedes and Audi (I had also test-driven those before ordering the BMW), who had immediately available cars. I thought the problem was only that specific dealership and, when I moved to the United States, I went for another BMW. Buying was actually OK this time (besides some pushiness at the dealership, but that is to be expected), but the maintenance was horrific every single time. I'm the kind of idiot who takes the car to back to the OEM dealership even for tire changing. I'm happy to pay more, but I expect something in return. They never offered me a replacement vehicle, even if I asked They replaced all 4 tires even if I had asked for 2 (and charged for all 4 of them) Took a MONTH, a full month, to fix a bumper and replace oil gasket and O2 sensors. And again, I got the car a week after the promised delivery date. It took many phone calls (most dodged) and two trips to the dealership. Every day it was "It will be ready tomorrow". Yeah, right. To summarize: I can't fathom how they sell even a single car. The only explanation is that the cars are freaking awesome and that counts more than horrible service. My guess is that if their dealership network was on par with the other German OEMs, BMW would easily add few % points to their market share. Number 2: bad electric cars The i8 is hybrid, not really electric. A Tesla is cheaper, faster, and carries more passengers than the i8. The i3 is a small (tall and narrow) minivan that no car lover would ever go near. In general, what BMW has not understood is that people want ,normal, electric cars, that look like a normal sedans. I'd be all over an electric 3 or 5 (NOT a plug-in hybrid). Something that is clean underneath, but looks just like all other cars from outside. BMW's i3 and i8 are cars that make a statement. Too bad the statement is "I probably don't care about the environment, but I want to show off that I do and that I have a lot of money to spare and probably an M4 and a Porsche Cayman in my other garage". Number 3: lack of a low-volume, super-sporty "proof of concept" to show that they can compete with the mid/high Porsche, Ferrari and the likes Not really a flaw... but I believe they should make a mid-engined two-seater. Won't sell much, but it will be good for the brand. I'd make it start at $100k and 400 HP. It could then go up to $150K and 500 HP and down to $70K and 350 HP. Audi has the R8, BMW does not have anything like that. Lastly one comment on Daniel Haffner's answer True, BMW is focusing more on luxury and less on driving experience. But this is mostly happening in US. In Europe BMW is still a sportscar. In US there are Camaros and Corvettes and Mustangs. Very cheap, extremely powerful and relatively unrefined (in terms of interior and, until few years ago, handling as well). If BMW had started marketing cars as "The car that is a little less powerful, but handles better, at twice the price", how many do you think they would have sold? Mercedes was already in the market and "German car" was synonym of luxury car. They did what they had to do. To conclude, this could be my personal impression, but my US-bought one with supposedly "stiff" set up does not feel any stiffer than my Italy-bought one, which did not have that option. In Italy, if you select the "stiff" option when you configure the car, it will break your back on a speed bump.

I’m not sure how to compare 2 electrics with a gasoline M4. Regardless, I would choose the Bmw. Teslas have not stood the test of time vs. BMW. Too many electrical components to malfunction, and depending on where you live, the availability of charging stations might be very limited. I’ve never driven a BMW that wasn’t fun to drive, and I have had several, including an all electric i3. If you want to go green, look for an eDrive BMW plug-in hybrid. I had an X5 eDrive and it was the best of both worlds- gasoline and electric! Fun to drive, practical, and got 35+ mpg.
Well in my opinion, the bmw i8 is the most useless bmw out there in terms of performance. Literally any m car can trash the i8 in a race. Why spend over 150,000 dollars for a plug in hybrid with 18 miles of range(electricity), 369 horsepower, a 3 cylinder engine, a 0–60 time a little over 4 seconds. It just doesn’t make sense. You’re better off putting your money in an m4 with up to 454 horsepower, in-line 6 cylinder, 0–60 in under 4 seconds, all for half the price. You’re essentially buying an i8 for the looks and stares, but not performance. you’d be stupid to pick an i8 over any other m car in the world. now in terms of why they’re getting rid of it, here’s my reasons Low sales awful performance for a 150k car low range for electric mode that’s my 2 cents!
2020 Vehicles with CD Players as Standard Equipment Below are results from my recent car-buying research (countless hours spent on manufacturers’ websites and looking through their glossy brochures) on cars that can still play CDs. I still buy CDs and listen to CDs from independent street musicians, who sell them while busking, or from low-income ethnic minorities who rely on vending CDs to supplement their income. This is my way of supporting my local culture and economy, rather than sending my dollars to big tech for streaming. I suggest when shopping at a dealership mention that you are seeking a particular car because it has a CD player. That way they know there is still significant demand for CDs. Parentheses indicate that CD player only comes in trims listed within. Models where CD player can be added as an option are on next list that immediately follows.

No, and they won’t be for at least a decade, possibly more. The present cars, the i3 and i8, are clearly inferior to Teslas in almost every respect. They aren’t as quick, the electric range is vastly inferior (especially for the i8), they are intentionally oddly designed into the quirky niche space as opposed to Teslas mass market appeal aesthetic, they don’t have over-the-air-updates, they don’t have a fast charger network or destination charger network, route planning for charging is not integrated, their autonomous driving capabilities are inferior, they are lower efficiency on electric, etc. There are a few people who really like the i3 as a city car, and more power to them. Both are massively compromised by the internal combustion infrastructure, whether the i3 has it installed or not. And that latter part is important for their upcoming electrified cars. BMW’s strategic electric architecture is an anything architecture. Literally every vehicle will be configurable as only internal combustion, only electric or as a plug-in hybrid. This means that every vehicle has to leave space for both power trains and both storage options. That means that they will be heavier and taller than necessary, and that their electric range and possibly their gas-only range will be compromised. Even their electric-only car will have all the routing and space choices to allow fuel pumps, oil pumps, a radiator and the related tubing and wiring harnesses for them, even though none of them are needed. The extra weight and space consumption means that they are much more constrained in their design language and engineering, so they’ll have compromised aesthetics and performance. The complexity means that they will be much harder to assemble, have higher quality failures and be more expensive to assemble. The combination will turn out to be an underperforming, aesthetically inferior, more expensive choice than equivalent Teslas. It’s only advantage will be that it has the BMW badge on it. They are designing the platypus of cars, without the cuteness. And it will still be sold through BMW dealerships. Dealers don’t like electric cars, because they make most of their money on maintenance which electric cars don’t require nearly as much of. They’ll have to mark the platypuses down massively to move them off the lot, and they won’t get revenue from the pure electric versions, so they’ll be pushing the gas-only or hybrid versions wherever possible. It’s a strategy that could only be thought up by a marketing weenie with no technical understanding, likely the same guy who decided that it was important to have an almost undifferentiated vehicle for every tiny niche buying behavior, from the 1 series through the 8 series, the X variations and the M variations. Over 30 vehicles that are hard to tell apart from their siblings, and all of which perform more poorly than Teslas under conditions that people actually drive them for. And, of course, now the Tesla Model 3 is a better track car than the BMW M3 or M4, so BMW is starting behind and accelerating in the wrong direction. It will take a decade for this absurd choice to work its way through, fail and be reversed. That’s par for the course for BMW these days. The bikeshedding of the i3 and i8, from the weird and unnecessary material development choice that’s now been abandoned, to the fake engine noise pumped into the i8 interior through the stereo, is going to be repeated. The major engineering strategy is already bad, and then they will make a bunch of other bad choices driven by marketing, not engineering or car designers, so the results will be late and bad. BMW: the ultimate car for platypus lovers.
German engineering is far far from the best. I believe it comes from a ww2 myth. But no, in reality their engineering is somewhat mediocre. Let's take theVW Bug as an example - the original - it was based on a Tatra (a very important but forgotten Czech company) - the Bug was basically the Tatra but with some improvements - it also had an air cooled engine. In fact the Nazis loved Tatras (Tatra also produced big fast sedans in that era). But why take an example of the Bug - its not a technological wonder like the Porsches! Yes it's not but it is important - it motorised the masses. On the other hand we've got other cars for the same purpose - the original Mini and the Fiat 500. The 500 is also air cooled but has a nicer quiter interior while the Mini really handled well - due to innovative solutions of engine mounting (first transverse mount) space saving and good wheels and axles placing. So of all three the Mini would win my award for the best car of the class and era with the Fiat 500 closely behind. But let's go to a bit more modern times. VW VR engines - the idea of making a V engine an inline-v hybrid - like the vr5 and vr6. VW marketed itself as the inventor of the solution… But it was first introduced by Lancia in the 1920s although they dropped the idea some time after. OK let's go modern cars. So, what plagues German cars? It depends on the brand but will go in quick: Audi's - no oil dipstick, unnecessarily complicated engines, bad handling (although there are some that do handle) - if you pay a visit to an Audi forum you'll notice some horror stories regarding the oil levels - since there's no dipstick, the level is monitored by a sensor. The sensor is KNOWN to fail. It would go to limp mode or stop completely since the sensor didn't find any oil although the engine was full. So then you'd refill - it will go but there would be too much of oil inside - that affects the pressue and makes the engine burn oil - with the possibility of destroying piston rings (which are also know to fail just after warranty expires on VAG cars) which will make it loose compression and power and make it an oil drinker. The complicated design screaming “unnecessary” in your fsce? Let's take the 3.0 V6 TDI engine - it has 4, four timing chains which are located in the back of the engine - in order to change them you have to pull the whole engine out. Even more modern German cars place the back of the engine to give it better handling - so whenever you have to change the spark plugs let's say - those in the back are under the firewall - so it's either pulling the engine or coming from the other side! But they do it to get better handling! - yes but somehow the Italians and the Japanase aren't doing that and many times get better handling (look up Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio nurburgring lap times and compare it to the Audi A4 or a regular BMW M4 of the era) In fact there's so much bad overengineering that working on them is a pain for anyone. Another thing from VAG that's funny is the plastic thermostat assembly's - they started making them out of plastic somewhere in the 90s. It works under heat and pressure and you can guess what happens to them. Let's go BMW - same as Audi - no oil dipstick since mid 2000s. Have you ever wondered why do they depreciate so fast? The oil situation + plastic timing drive parts that fail, bad gaskets on 2.0 diesel engines - the maintenance can be huge on them. The BMW handling is praised among the fans however - if you look up the front suspension diagram of the BMW E46 and an Alfa Romeo 156 (same era cars) the 156 uses a double wishbone while the e46 only single. This of course affects handling as on a double wishbone whenever the wheel travels up and down the geometry is kept while on a single wishbone everything floats and geometry changes. (correct me if I'm wrong). The Ferrari 360, Nissan Skyline's, Honda NSX's - they all use double wishbone suspension. Mercedes? While before Chrysler know for reliability and rust, nowadays it's not as its been before. Have you ever heard of the failing air suspension or brakes flying of off the car? The suspension is Citroen hydro suspension inspired - I bet the marketers said that its one of a kind original idea. The thing is - Citroen - while often ridiculed and laughed at know how to make the suspension work and make it comfortable - the one in Mercedes was falling apart. Regarding the brakes failure - the are many YT videos when the failure happens - those are fun, look them up. Going back to the original question - the Japanese know both how to make a sturdy reliable engine (like the 4gae from Toyotas) that are somewhat sporty too and high power wonders (like the Yamaha designed V8 in Volvos or the LFA engine). I'm not going to say that all Germans cars are bad - because they also did a fair share of great great machines - BUT most of the time you could find something either more exciting or more reliable from both Japan and Italy. The general opinion doesn't have to have a lot in common with reality. Italian cars are known as unreliable - but having grown up all my life with Italian cars - it couldn't be further from reality - my mother's Lancia Y that we bought in 2007 has over 200 000 km of mileage, and had first suspension rebuild just know. It was so badly maintained that in one period the oil wasn't changed in 4 years and coolant level sat below minimal for the same amount of time. And it purrs happily today, 19 years after production. I bet the original articles of the 90s said something like “nice design but it will probably fall apart knowing the Italian reliability” - were they right? I don't think so. The reveiws from auto magazines said that my own Alfa gave error codes every 5 min (that's literally what's been written) and while it's a blast to drive, its not reliable. They do write the same about current Giulia “same behaviour as with the older Alfas like 75 and 164”. Thing is journalists in our era often get paid money to say things like that. Actually Enzo Ferrari's last personal car was an Alfa Romeo 164 - would Enzo Ferrari himself drive a car that brakes down every 5 min? I don't think so. My Alfa is 18 y old and in my ownership it threw an error only once - after an error made by the mechanic after timing drive changed - took it back and got it fixed. It has over 240 000 km on the odo and I just drove it from Poland to Italy and back this summer. For many Japanese cars something would be written along the lines :”while nice to drive and probably reliable - it's not as fast or powerful like the German competition. Which is absurd anyway cause both the Japanese and the Italians would put a smaller engine but make the whole car also lighter and make it handle better and probably make more power too. There's so many things created outside of Germany like common rail (Alfa Romeo in 1996) or VVT (Fiat in 1975) that we never hear of - what we hear instead is the general praise of German cars - makes you wonder how much the journalists make. In fact if you're looking for a car, any car - and take reliability to account - just buy the car you like. Just omitt the ones with horrible engineering. All cars break down- sometimes it's bad maintenance and usage (happens often with Alfas) other time its just bad design. But just buy the car you like and don't listen to journalists - they try to make you feel dumb. In the era of the Internet and fact checking - the best idea would be to just schedule a test drive and check the owners forum - enough information to buy well.
You might want to be careful about this one! There was a famous V8 a number of years ago that used new “long life” spark plugs that don't need to be replaced til around 100,000 miles or so. When the time came for them to be replaced, mechanics found that the plugs tend to be so cemented to the block that getting them out is nearly impossible. Ends up being an expensive and frustrating saga. Changing your plugs is cheap and a BMW is not.
