So I think these are more or less the average US sales numbers:

3-series: 275/day.
7-series: 30/day
Z4: 10/day
1M: 2/day (one year limited production)
M3 lime rock: 0.5/day (one year limited production)

Dare we conclude that the Z4-model, the most beautiful BMW currently on offer, is also the most limited production model of the current non-limited production BMW models? It seems even the 6-series is selling better this year...
Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
