GENEVA, Feb 28 (Reuters) - BMW , the world's largest premium car maker, expects vehicle sales growth in 2006 to slow down from last year's 9.9 percent increase. "Alone from base effect, we will not be able to achieve that growth," said sales and marketing chief Michael Ganal on the sidelines of the Geneva car show on Tuesday. He declined to give a more specific target. Chief Executive Helmut Panke said in January that the group aims to post another record in deliveries this year.
