X3 isn`t the only vehicle made by BMW, so basing the discounts achieved on that and BMW's sales crown loss to mercedes isn`t a valid argument. If you scour the Ask-a-dealer section it was really a good year to buy the 5,6 series last decemeber. This year not soo much, but that too is also because 5 went thru a recent LCI.
The CLA raked in 2,300 orders the first launch week. It then solely accounted for the 14% increase in sales for MB for the month of Nov. Finally CLA sales have been so great, there's a shortage of allocations at the plant that`s suppose to last till late summer....BTW sales are at MSRP or 1% below.
Mercedes has got the crown. Audi might have something withits A3 sedan. BMW still not there yet.
BMW and Mercedes Build Beta Products!
Lexus build Release Candidate Products!
Why does this matter?
CAUSE EVERY TIME someone says Lexus has better build quality, one should consider what Toyota their Lexus Engine and chassis platform comes out of and how long that part has been tested in the real world!
