At the close of the 3rd quarter many manufacturers will take a look back assess their position and make the final assualt to sell more cars than they did last year.



With a shaky market, and tight consumer lending in place, it has been a tough job for everyone, but there are a few clear cut winners for the year so far.

With 230 selling days completed, coincidently the same as last year, all of the various reporting methods converge on a singular figure and can be judged equally.

Who is doing the best job beating last years figures and who is dragging their heels?
