How can the sales numbers not improve when a new model is released every quarter?

Obviously because it's about to be replaced with new MINI. This happens every time a new model is about to be launched.

Part of me wouldn't mind sales decreasing. I don't mind having a "less common" car, not to mention, it'd force them to offer better financing deals. Then again, it's a testament to their quality of a company.

Looks like there will be no three-peat for BMW. Mercedes takes the sales crown this year.

the F3x really is going to be their lifeline for a while, i think. i saw an F32 335 on the road first time today. i'm expecting them to become more ubiquitous through the new year

How can it be up? 600, to me, sounds like a realistic number of enthusiasts that want to grab one of the last BMW that still have some of that old BMW feel. You don't have to look no further than the forums here where some of the members have hinted or thought the same thing.

Yikes! I fear I agree with this

I am surprised by the MINI coupe and roadster... they are still relatively new and they just sold 91 and 109 units only??

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

BMW has to be scratching their heads. While Auto industry is booming right now, they are stagnant.
