The 5GT is not a POS, it does bring profit to BMW... in China, just not in the US unfortunately.

I would love to own that 5GT if i had the means.

A nice, low-slung wagon does NOT look like a minivan. And I can haul my gear when I need to...
I am sorry that you misunderstood me, but i dont make that stigma...
i am trying to undo the stigma...
I am pro wagon and anti SUV myself... just like you...

I just find it unfortunate that people are dis-missing the wagon in favor of the false sense of security that is brought by the elevated ride of SUV...

I would prefer a low car that can avoid accident over the higher center of gravity of the SUV...
