BMW is not the only manufacturer to expand their performance or aftermarket division. It all comes down to profit. Why let an aftermarket tuner make all the money when they can try to grab a piece of the profits themselves. In this ever competitive industry, any profits is better than no profits.ATL_MB said:This is pure speculation on my part, but the fact that AMG is selling very well (my impression -- they are everywhere in Atlanta) and seems to be keen on challenging the M cars handling advantage (w. Black Series), BMW may be thinking they need to invest in the M Division -- they used to have 2 M cars, now they have what, 5 or 6? (M3, M5, M6 coupe, M6 conv. Z4 M coupe and conv., ??). BMW is making money hand over fist, but new cars are still wildly expensive.
GM through it's Opel division last raced from '00-'05. They pulled out due to their lack of competitiveness and the company's financial troubles.Yacht Master said:Just MB and Audi, any body know?
