    I’m very happy to find regularly informations about Croatia (and Slovenia), but what about Bosnia and Serbia ?
    It seems very difficult to have statistics about cars sales in these two countries : there are only two articles for each country in “Best Selling Cars” archives (Bosnia 2008 and 2011, Serbia 2007 and July 2011).

    I have a Serbian friend (boy) and a Bosniak friend (girl), but it’s hard to make them to say what are the most popular cars over there… Except the discontinued Yugo.
