i actually think they're helping the market- they are defining that when you buy a 1 series, its a 5 door car, when you buy a 2 series, its a 3 door car.
as opposed to now, when you buy a 1 series, you either have an F20 for 5 door, or F21 for 3 door.
makes sense to me. they're not making more cars, just refining the difference between the models.
for us, its just the pain point of changing how we look at the BMW ecosystem- for new buyers, it makes it simpler to see the options.
