This is only semi-accurate. You've omitted the fact that half of the "3-series" lineup is the old E92 coupe, which is obviously selling less because many buyers will be waiting for the upcoming F32.
Fact is, you can't establish F30 versus E90 numbers at all from the provided figures.
I agree that it's much more effective to look at the year to date figures, because there's only a 3,000 unit difference, which was almost entirely achieved in November.
