Anyone happen to know how many 330Ci's BMW sells/makes in one year? I know they sold 528,258 3-series worldwide last year. However, I can't seem to find the numbers on the 330Ci alone (worldwide or in the USA). Thanks.

Well, the 3-series BMW is the number 1 selleing car in North Amercia. I suppose 330ci's acount for less then a quarter of their sales so i'm guessing. About 200,000 +/- Anyways hows the SMG in the 330ci? I wanted it but it's not an option with the performace package. But the response and power of the car makes up for it anyways. I love it. L8terzz

The SMG is great. I shift faster than a manual, have the same MPG as a manual, but the ease of a tiptronic in shifting gears. As for my inquiry, if they make for less than a quarter per year of overall 3-series sales, that would be less than ~ 132,000. With SMG, or ZHP in your case, I would assume a number even more narrow. Anyone else know the official numbers?

If I had to guess, I would say 325 would make up about 65~70% of the 3 series.

330 would then make up approx. 30~35%.

330 Coupe would be approx. 30~40% of the 330 lot.

That makes 330Ci population approx. 10% of the entire 3 series (not even considering Touring and xi models).

From what I see on the road, about 1 out of 10 is about right.

SMG would be about 1/5 of the sales, making 330Ci w/ SMG about 1 out of 50 3 series.
