I disagree. Every other manufacturer on the face of the earth is increasing interior quality. BMW is the only one pulling this crap.

An $18k Civic doesn't have as much hard plastic.

I guarantee the Audi S3 will have a vastly superior interior in this price range.

The CLA while not great, also has a better interior.

I could go on and on.

BMW is only cutting about $200/car in manufacturing costs by building these crappy interiors. I would rather they raise the price $200 and give me something nice. The current strategy, however, seems to be to keep the nice interiors at 5 series and above levels. This I don't understand. Why do I have to drive a big car to get a nice interior?
