Here is some news about BMW and it is not all that good. It is a list of 5 cars that no one wants to buy any more and 2 of them are BMWs! One will not surprise you but the other one sure will (its sales are down 85%), and it might explain why BMW sales in general are down and their dealers less than optimistic about helping the club these days.
Auto buyers are a fickle bunch. Sometimes a new model is released to fanfare, positive press reviews, and a strong response from buyers. Two years later, dealers are complaining about them taking up space on their lots. Or sometimes, a car is a can't-miss hit on paper, and flops terribly.
