Interesting numbers for sure. Cant help notice the 7 dropped 25% - new Sclass ? and the X3 sales THAT i am surprised. Any reasons. It would also be cool to see these post with similar figures from main rivals.

Why is it then that BMW is always topping the list as to the most significant discounts on vehicles? I think C&D had them listed as offering 5 of the top 10 largest discounts on new vehicles.

Does BMW force dealerships to buy cars, thereby inflating sales figures?

Now that they have the 3-series and 4-series differentiated why do they combine the sales figures of the two?

I agree that thing is GORGEOUS! However, people spending that kind of money tend to want the "exclusivity" factor, and if something has been out for a couple years they sit/wait/buy something else.

X3paul : Audi reported (for NA Market):May 2014 sales of 16,601 vehicles, which stands as the brand’s second-best month ever and its 41st consecutive month of record sales. May only trailed the all-time record monthly sales mark set in December 2013 of 17,013 vehicles sold. Audi sales year-to-date increased 11.4% to 67,482 vehicles sold.

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche 911, Boxster and Cayman sports cars, Macan and Cayenne SUVs, and the Panamera four-door sports sedan in the United States, today announced May sales of 4,609 vehicles. Mid-May marked the sales start of the 2015 Macan S and Macan Turbo, which amounted to 1,263 units. That month’s total not only beats last year’s record sales number for the month of May by 17.3 percent, but it’s also the best ever sales month for Porsche in the U.S. For the year, PCNA has delivered 18,817 vehicles versus 17,609 during the same period last year, an increase of 6.9 percent.

Mercedes reported a 7.7 percent increase to 26,617 deliveries, led by a 25 percent gain in sales of the E-class sedan and an 83 percent jump in the top-of-the-line S- class.

I thought the X1 has only been out two years, so I guess I didn't realize it had an LCI already.

After double checking, it has only been a 2013 and a 2014 model, so I'm not quite following your comment on it.
