E9X M3 Production/Sales Figures

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi folks,

In my relentless thirst for all things E9X M3 related, I am looking for production/sales figures on BMW E9X M models. Many manufacturers post sales figures, and I'm curious as to where I can find this information for BMW M-models.

Ideally, a break-down for body style sales figures; E90/92/93 is what I'm after.

Incidentally, numerous searches have yielded unrelated threads, so no luck there!

Thanks in advance
Asif

You need to find a copy of BIMMER magazine. They have it in there.

I read somewhere that the OFFICIAL BMW M figures are released a few year after a production run ends, but with the recent figures released for the M5 last month, that might not be correct. However, I don't think we've even seen the E46 M3 production numbers - have we?

The official BMW press release from last month regarding the end of production for the M5 model stated that they had produced 20,548 M5s during it's 5-year production run. Simple math shows this to be 4,109 car per year for the world. Which is not much, at all.

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...on-e60-m5.html

I think the M3 is right at that level and it could actually be even lower since this was an all-time high for the M5 production line - and I've seen so many more M5s around town, at dealerships, classifieds, etc. That's not to say there have been more M5s produced than M3s, but it's an observation worth noting.

At the end of the day, I don't believe BMW AG make more than 5,000 M3's (E90, E92, E93 included) for the world / year.

I would be extremely shocked if this is anywhere near true. As I recall it, BMW had released some rough E9x M3 sales numbers twice over the past few years, and if I am remembering correctly, sales in 2007 alone (yes the car was on sale in 2007) were in the thousands, and that was before a single US sale. I also recall something about 9000 M3's in 2008. I could probably search and find this stuff, and I might do that. It's all been posted on this forum.

BMWs stated goal/estimate was to sell 100k E9X M3's. I think I've seen the same numbers mkoesel is referring to and using those and extrapolating I think the 100k figured looked to be very roughly on target. Those numbers were released very early on and were only partial year numbers IIRC. Of course the economy went to shit about the same time as the car was being released.

Looking at the numbers, e46 sold 85k! e9x numbers look just pathetic. Although there is 1 - 1.5 more years to go.

According to this site:

http://www.carscoops.com/2013/07/las...roduction.html

Unveiled in 2007, the E9X generation M3 (E90 Sedan, E92 Coupe and E93 Convertible) was the first V8-powered model in the series. The Coupe was by far the most successful, with BMW delivering more than 40,000 examples worldwide. The sedan M3 added close to 10,000 units to the total, while just under 16,000 units of the convertible edition have been built to date.

It's broken down for US versus Global, so not sure how much the data is useful to you up north.
