I understand the need to pursue this technology, after all BMW is in a volume-driven business with competitors also developing autonomy.

With that being said, it's pretty much a shame because BMW used to literally be the "ultimate driving machine." With the way the world has changed over the past decade or so, consumers really want the opposite and BMW has obliged as evidenced by how differently their cars drive now compared to not even 10 yrs ago.

It's only a matter of time before the autonomy bug hits Porsche too. They keep hitting record sales thanks to the Macan and Cayenne, but unfortunately the majority of those buyers are status-obsessed and could care less about buying a Porsche for well...what they're known for. Oh the irony.
