Holy crap, can this possibly be right? According to this press release, "BMW Group U.S. Division Reports February Sales",, BMW sold ten 7 series BMWs in the U.S. in February, 33 in January and February, compared with 1,502 and 2,212 last year.

Like all auto makers, BMW can't be doing very well in these times. I assume the current inventory of 7-series is nearly depleted, with the new model build out? (I'm not really sure how that works)

We do some work for BMW Financial Servies (North America) here in Dublin, and I'll be on-site next week. I'll ask around, as they do all of the financing.
