They can still get a little incremental volume on the TT engine from the modest 135i sales to improve margins on the 335i. Also 1er margins benefit from sticking to their guns on price. I mean the vast majority of 1er will be leased 128's to people seeking a rondel on the car for status. They will let performance enthusiasts pay through the nose for a 135i perhaps. Don't know what kind of arrogance the marketing department is having lately with Benz having quality issues, big three a joke and SUV sales slowing.:iono:
I could see that happening. Let's hope not, though.
