The era that we are heading towards is higher gas prices, which requires a need for better fuel efficiency. BMW is following market trends, and the trends show that people want more fuel efficient vehicles. Why do you think the new 328i has a 4 cylinder motor? As gas prices climb higher, car manufacturers must find new ways to make cars cheaper to operate, and carbon fiber is one of those ways. I applaud BMW for being on the cutting edge of this technology for automobiles and for exploring new ways to increase fuel efficiency.
