The US consumer is also looking for the comfortable riding sedan. The price is also important. In addition, some consumers may not like the F30 and would prefer to hold on to their E90s/E92s. Also, consider the current economic situation. I'm not sure consumers a running into dealerships buying new cars like they used to 5-6 years ago. And if they are, they are seriously looking at the sweet deals which other brands may be offering at the moment due to the fact that their small luxury sedans are at the end or in the middle of their design cycles.
