I do like a neutral rwd car that doesn't understeer at the limit, but most of the modern mainstream BMWs sure understeer instead of neutrality or nice progressive oversteer. I just did BMWs autocross event with the new G20 330i M Sport, and yes it was a fine car, but a far cry from BMWs circa 1995-2011. It sure started to understeer when coming to the limit, unless deliberately prodded to a slide (which we really could t do) I had a 2007 BMW 120d M Sport while I lived in Germany and it was an amazing car, but for 2 people... The rwd at that size with a big rear tunnel doesn't make a great family car so I understand the fwd/awd move for the 1 series, more mainstream clientele and roomier cabin to compete with higher end Golfs and Merc A classes. . As long as they keep making the 2 series rwd and maybe move away from staggered tire sizes, we'll have nice cars to look forward to in the future
