It's a bummer that you need to go with the Luxury line to get that sweet Saddle Brown interior. I don't get why BMW pushes Camry Beige as the major interior color.

Oh well, if they offer the right M-Sport F31 in the States, I'll put my order in with black interior..

Well I hope so, but the N20 is coming first and that's exactly how I'm ordering it. Estoril blue, M Sport, 6MT.

Still a great setup. I love that motor. I am very impressed with it, and I'm sure as time goes on, there will be some good aftermarket tuning options.

I thought I'd hold on to my E91 M Sport for a while but a F31 M Sport would tempt me to trade

I agree. I think the f31 looks a lot better. The odd front matches the f31.

The more I look at it the more I realize how fantastic this looks. I would seriously love to get one of these to replace the aging Honda oddyssey I have in my family

I'm sure it's not like that stationary. Those pics were probably taken mid turn with plenty of body roll.

Love. I love it. Hurry up BMW, get it here. I don't want to put one more penny into my old Subaru wagon It's slow, gets bad gas mileage and is finally starting to fall apart (it's a 2000). It's been great, but it's time to move on..."it's not you baby, it's me!"

I think this thing might look better than the Audi B8 A4 Avant, and that is hard to do

Can't wait!!

I did find this interesting:


The engine line-up from its sedan sibling will be carried over to the wagon variant. This will include a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol with outputs of 184 PS (135 kW / 181 bhp) and 245 PS (180 kW / 241 bhp) as well as a 3.0-liter inline-six with 320 PS (235 kW / 315 bhp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

I realize this article was intended for Euro customers but I wonder if this is a hint the N55 will get a tiny bump in power in the F31s.

New Photos:

Are we possibly looking at the first indication of a 328i xDrive with manual transmission? When we previously interviewed BMW on which F30/F31 xDrive models would receive a manual transmission, all we were told was that there would be at least one xDrive model with manual transmission. So, *if* this particular F31 is a 328i xDrive model (the front suspension appears to sit a bit higher?), then it would appear that the 328i may be one of the xDrive models to receive a manual transmission option.

I'd like a 328i F31. Now if they'd only bring the 320d engine over to match it...
