    how many say… M3 did they sell? (I dont know their car titles)

  2. HVACman says:

    And at the pace that i8 owners are totaling theirs, one i8 original sale frequently means two units produced (original plus insurance-funded replacement).

  3. Elroy says:

    Helps keep things into perspective when you realize BMW almost sold 2/3 as many plug-ins last month as Tesla. Yet plug-ins still represent less than 1/60th of their total car sales.
