What sells more m4 or m3 & allocation question

So what is selling more?

Also, is allocation based on model or is there ine allocation pool for all cars?
Example does dealer get 10 allocations per month for any car (e.g. all i8s, mix of i8 and m3 and m4, whatever) OR does dealer get model specific allocation (3 m3, 4 m4, 1 i8, 2 m6)

My casual observation is that the M4 outsells the M3 by a large margin. Right now everyone is scrambling to get a 15 M3 because of the 66 percent residual and the 1000 anniversary credit. However, unless you already secured an allocation, they are all spoken for now. I am purposely paying alot more money for an M4 because I prefer coupes and I already have a 335 in the garage anyway. You historically buy sedans so I am guessing you are leaning toward the M3 instead of the M4? Lastly, my understanding is that dealer allocations are by model. Of course, dealers can often trade one allocation (ie: M4) for another (ie: M3). I know Adrian did that for a couple of festers....

Yup. The dealer we test drove on said he sells more m3s and charges more. I wasn't biting, but its too early to argue. His asking price is not terrible (1200 over invoice ) but he can do better. Especially since it will be 3 to 6 car sales in one day

On a side not the sales guy was very nice. He let BEMO and me take the m4 out for a drive alone. He was friendly and not pushy. I respect that a lot
