I just took a look at the automotive sales numbers for September. It was a good month for Lexus and a horrible month for BMW. Lexus sold 16,888 cars (compared to 13,674 in September of 1999).

BMW only sold 4,760 cars this September (compared to 8,610 car in September 1999). The 3-series and Z3 both got spanked really bad.

Lexus sold 2,445 IS300s compared to only 1,641 3-series BMWs.

One thing that really caught my attention was the fact that the new Nissan Sentra's sales are almost triple those of the previous body style.

I don't know what you're smoking, but according to the BMW press release, they sold 7532 3-Series cars during September. 3694 of them were 323i/325i/328i/330i sedans. Which is a lot more than the IS sold.
In fact, there are about an equal amount of 330Ci coupe and convertibles sold by BMW in September - 2437. That's not even counting all those 323, 325 and whatevers out there.

A total of 14494 BMWs were sold:
