This is doubtful. The 328i Sedan is the volume leader by far in the U.S. Last I recall, it represents something like 70% of all 3 Series sold across the country. In previous model changeovers when the new sedan predated the introduction of the new coupe/convertible (the usual pattern), overall 3 Series have still gone up because the new sedan sells so well. The lack of F30 sales is definitely the problem in the U.S.
