Is a front-wheel drive BMW a bad idea? - BMW Cars Review

I can understand the upset. BMW has long been a sports car company that rested its hat on RWD and one of the last and only automakers to not sell a FWD car. So it may seem like betrayal to the BMW faithful to finally break that tradition.I’m now going to suggest a crazy idea. I don’t think it’s a bad idea — if done right.Yes, I know, BMW makes RWD cars and should stick with that. The thing is, they will. BMW will not abandon RWD just because they will allegedly make the new 1 Series a front-wheel drive vehicle. BMW will always use the rear wheels as their primary outlet. But a FWD car can do a lot for BMW.Right now the VW Golf is one of the hottest cars in the world.
