Apart from the Rover distraction, BMW has, for years, been single minded in its efforts to marry performance and luxury. Despite Aston Martin reporting its first profit in 40 years, it looks like BMW sees no advantage to owning Ford's high-end carmaker. BMW Chief Executive Norbert Reithofer said Thursday, "We are a focused company and we want to stay a focused company. We're not interested."

That's OK BMW. Aston's too good for you anyway. You won't find Aston Martin sitting at home this Friday night crying. No sir. In fact, there are other well-financed buyers just lined up just dying for Aston Martin to call back.
