Thumbs up BMW doubles Australian M3 Coupe sales through first six months (compared to E46 M3)

The all-new E92 BMW M3 Coupe may have just recently hit the U.S. market, but that car has actually been on the Australian market for six months now. And, according to the initial sales report, the new car is twice as popular as the previous generation E46 M3 Coupe in the land of Oz.

BMW has announced that it has sold 263 M3 Coupes during the first six months the car has been on the market in Australia, compared to just 132 examples of the E46 M3 Coupe during its first six months on the market.

“We have been blown away by the level of passion and excitement our customers have expressed for the new M3 Coupe,” said Tom Noble, BMW General Manager, Marketing.
Not a huge overall #, but goes to show you that pundits who say the E92 M3 isn't getting as much attention as the E46 M3 early in their respective releases could be premature in making such statements, at least when it applies to Australia.
