    Thanks Matt, it is interesting to see regional differences within the UK, the BMW 3 series is very common in England but not so much in Scotland, Vauxhall (Opel) are more popular as is the Qashqai, Renault have had falling sales in the UK in the last few years, but the Clio is doing very well in Scotland, the Golf is less popular.

    Hi Matt,

    You speak of a new territory, but please note that Scotland is part of the United Kingdom and therefore the sales you state are part of the UK sales, not additional. You could be differing between Wales, Scotland and England instead though.

    Best,
