    Is 135 production really that limited?

    I pulled into the local dealer the other day, looking for a 135. A salesman flagged me down and tried to show me a 128 instead, and said that they only had one 135 coming up in 2009. Granted, it's Alaska, but there are plenty of BMW's here. The lot was full of new toys, including an X6. I'm guessing it was a dealership ploy, but is it possible, that they are in that short supply?

    Re: Is 135 production really that limited?

    I don't know how they determine allocations other than sales volume, but the 135's aren't in short supply at my dealer. Their website says there are 10 135's in stock. I was by there on Friday and it appeared there were probably 10 - 12. A quick look at a couple of other dealers within 50 miles indicates that they have 6-8 each.

    So all I can really say is that it doesn't appear that all dealers are in short supply of them.

    10,000 units per year worldwide.

    This includes:

    135i coupe
    128i coupe
    135i vert
    128i vert


    So yes, they are limited especially 135i coupes.

    Check your Cliff Notes; salesman BS!

    Or do you not think a salesman will tell you whatever to push you into what he can do easily?
