Production numbers?

hey Guys, and Bluebee,

Do any of you have links to e39 production numbers by year and model? Seems like I have seen this before, but I have searched and not found what I am looking for.

Thanks in advance.

Marv

Any numbers you find are speculation, since BMW does not release such info.

I'm not sure what you're looking for.
Are you looking for something like this? (only for particular E39 numbers produced)?

I think he wants more detail than that; e.g., how many '03 540is were built with a 6-speed. As I've read elsewhere (in Bimmer magazine), BMW does not release information that detailed.

Thanks edjack and bluebee, yes I was looking for actual #'s produced of the individual e39's, but NA sales figures would be good, as well. Like I said, I thought I had seen this info, but I can't seem to recreate it.

Edjack, I think you are right (once again )about BMW not releasing the actual production numbers.
