People are probably flocking to Audis. Even BMW held up quite well. But these are traditionally very good values.
"When they shop for premium products they are buying brands that have a history of value, dependability and enduring quality. This has helped sales in our core 3 Series, 5 Series and X5 range." said Jim O'Donnell, President of BMW of North America, LLC.
