Pretty incredible to see those numbers on the 5-series. Maybe aggressive lease rates? I haven't been following that closely.

Further inspection may take away some of the luster of a "10% increase" in sales. All of the typical breadwinners for the brand are down, save the 5er. I would like to compare some of these numbers to Audi's and Cadillac's, respective to the direct competitiors. Where did those 3er people go? What about the X3 people...? Hmm... We'll see if the brand is, overall, moving in the right direction in a few months or so.

If it is like Canada, the 3 series owners moved to the X1.

3 series sales will never be as high as the were b/c the coupes will be 4 series going forward. I would actually say 3 series sales are very strong considering they are selling the new sedan along side the old coupe, I guarantee most of those sales are the new sedan. Once the new 4 series comes out and you combine 4 and 3 series numbers I bet they will surpass old 3 series levels.

Also with the new x5, 4 series, 2 series and mini cooper around the corner it looks like sales will only go up.

It has been an excellent month for the industry, in general. Domestic brands make even better progressions than that (Ford is over 20% increase in sales!!).

Does anyone know (or point me out), how many of these US Sales % is European Delivery? Is there any way to figure that out?

I guess the 3 series is attracting the younger professionals who tired of the Toyota Camry. Good for them.
