AID compiled data reveals that September registrations of new cars in Western Europe rose 5.7 per cent, reassuring carmakers, dealers and their suppliers that the regionís underlying car sales recovery is still under way and that the distinct sudden slowing in sales pace in August was little more than a blip

Septemberís return to a markedly faster than feared rise in advance brings West Europeís cumulative car sales total to 9.2m passenger cars 

On an annualised basis, AIDís forecasters calculated that sales in Western Europe last month were running at a rate of just 12.1m cars, still 2.7m short of the 14.8m cars sold in Western Europe in pre-crisis 2007
