    The bulk of BMW sales are 3 series vehicles. With Tesla about to announce its Model 3, I'm betting many buyers are holding off to see if the Model 3 will be as compelling in its category as the Model S is in the 7 series vehicle class. The pending Model 3 announcement is also likely hurting i3 and 5 series sales.
