I really like it.
But, early 2013? C'mon BMWNA, get it here by the fall.

Please, please, bring this over in 335i xDrive trim. I know you love to offer the wagons in NA with only the lowest spec engine, but there are quite a few of us who would love a wagon in top spec. You would have the sport wagon market all to yourself, as all the other manufacturers have also given up on it. Family men (and women) who like to drive don't want a high-riding crossover, we want the sleeper speed wagon. And while we have your attention, please import the 550i xDrive Touring as well. I will buy that one tomorrow. Also, please kill the 550i GT. It is the epitome of "so close, and yet so far." That thing is hideous and not what we want.
Hahaha. Amen to that. Ill take a F31 RWD 335 with sports auto 8at.

Entirely my speculation, but since the F10 wagon is not making it stateside I am thinking that perhaps they will throw the niche wagon market buyers a bone and offer more engine and spec options on the F30 wagon. The explanation given time and again by BMW NA execs as to why we don't get the cool euro options like a 1 series 5 door, certain spec options, a diesel wagon etc., due to the cost of safety testing and that due to the lack of a world emissions standard. The cost of getting a specific engine approved for sale the he USA kills the economics of offering it.

But if you are already safety testing the body, and already offer the engine, what is the obstacle to offering different combinations? We know an F30 wagon is coming to the US and there was a recent quote by a BMW NA exec that a diesel 3 series will continue to be offered, though the exact engine is yet to be finalized. So, why not offer that diesel and 35i engine in everything you make- X1, X3, 3 series wagon, 5 series. Even if certain models are not that profitable, its not like you are struggling in the finances, each month as been better than the last. BMW is making money, give something back to your loyal family.

EXACTLYYYY, it's pretty ugly and in my eyes useless, might as well just get an X1 or X3.

I doubt they will offer it only with the lowest spec engine in the US, as this would be a 316i or 316d

I don't understand this wagon stuff. I mean the car looks great,however, of you were given a chance of an M5 or M5wagon you'd all chose wagon.

Can someone explain this

Now that the 328 will be a turbo 4, I'd actually rather have this option. Lighter with limitless tuning potential.

Three kids plus golf clubs bro. Just more practical. Plus it looks closer to a shooting brake. Classy...
