Whoever brings the next diesel wagon will get my business. I know it won't be Audi but it may be BMW or Mercedes. I like that the current MB E350 is a great size for big trips and hauling stuff, similar to the E61/F10 5 series.
The next 3 wagon however will be larger than the 2007 328iT6 Sport Wagon, 6spd I bought new in 2007 but later sold for a more capable wagon.
What an awesome car you have. Was looking at E91's on Autotrader the other day with 6MT and only found 1 in a 500 mile radius. I'd love to have an E61 like that.
Having said that, make mine an F31 with 6 cyl, 8AT, Mpack, CWP and HUD. Will only be slightly less efficient than 4cyl since my drive is mostly highway, yet still have all the torque I'll ever need. Also more refinement too.
FYI, checked the BMW UK website, and while I know their testing procedure is different than EPA, they are claiming that the F31 330d will do 46 US MPG combined cycle!
This is too exciting
