My wife used to own an R56 MCS that she drove for almost 5 years… nice car when it's working. Reliability was terrible though. Water pump failures on multiple occasions, turbo failure, gearbox failure and a list too long to bother typing up. Would not recommend.

not complaining but these post would be more interesting with rival brand sales compared. I just looked somewhere else that audi sold 2500 A3's in June against the 600 bmw did for the 1/2. ouch but no surprise there I guess with those looks...anyone know the Aclass sales figure?

That's a shame to hear. The R50/R53 were sooooo good. I had an R50, literally not one single problem in 60K miles of driving. I sold it only because I had too many cars and the MINI drew shortest straw. They really ruined a good thing with MINI.

The BMW NA CEO is not happy with diesel sales.

Also interesting that the percentage of 3 & 4 series cars (non-M) sold with a manual transmission has fallen to the "low single digits".

I'm not too surprised with low 2-series sales. It's basically the new 1-series and the 1-series sold terribly.

Once they release a awd 2 series it'll climb back up a lot. Pretty much the only drawback to the 2 currently for majority of people looking for one.

Audi and MB showed that people in that segment are usually looking for badge and looks rather than driving quality. I think the CLA is actually losing steam, we'll see if the A3 can hold up but yeah a lot of those entry level buyers don't seem to care (or even aware) that they're FWD (though there is an AWD option). Actually I've read the A3 is a pretty good drive for a FWD car.

Then again, the 2 series is a coupe exclusively so that really limits sales to those looking for more practicality. The 320i sort of makes a 2 series sedan moot from a sales/marketing perspective.
