Mercedes totals were 24,713, so it looks like BMW beat them for the month. YTD though it looks like Mercedes leads ~117K to ~113K..

I don't like when they have an increase because it makes them think they're new method of "soft" is working. If they started to fail miserably, they would go back to the drawing board of building the Ultimate Driving Machine again.

No but they weren't last year either. They arguably cheated a little bit to win last year.

Because people online would rather complain and whine rather than be positive.

When 3 series sales were down, people were screaming and shouting ring the death bell for BMW. Now that sales are up 47% not a peep from those same people.
