My experience with single BMW I did own was that the manufacturer is too fast to jump on new technologies. The flagship car I did own was one of the first drive by wire models and had a LOT of design glitches. Faulty door switch would put transmission in limp mode. The cables for seat movements were too short and have been coming off the end sockets, leaving me on the road with badly misaligned seat.
Doesn't happen very often, but what they have been thinking about?
