Lots of car companies inflate sales figures that way. Unhealthy, because making life even more difficult the subsequent year. In life there are good days and bad days, evolving with ups and downs, progress and setbacks. It's a flawed, unnatural reasoning to expect growth each year. Way too many variables as life and society moves on day after day, offering new challenges and opportunities.
Unethical is unethical IMO

Business practice understood. The Order recites settlement "without admitting or denying the findings herein". (P 1) "A violation ... does not require scienter ...".(P 10) I choose to believe BMW did not knowingly and intentionally violate the involved SEC regulations.
