Anyone interested in a F31 M-sport manual 3.5i

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I know its another year till the "Wagon" or "Touring" version of the new 3 series. Are there any other, US residents who are seriously interested in a sport wagon? I would put a deposit down today on a 3.5i M sport wagon.


Not this color, but I think it is way better looking that any SUV or SAV.

Thumbs up I would !



I know i would seriously consider the F31 (3 series touring) 335i 6MT if it was made available for sale at the same time as the F30.

But as with BMW's decision and because of my impatience...
i already started making arrangement for the pre-order of a F30 335i 6MT saloon with ED



PS: the F31 is the Best looking 3 series touring ever! (aside from the E30



Wiles335i: i am ordering an Imperial Blue 335i, thanks for changing the pics in your post gives me a better idea of what i would have gotten if F31 was available from the get-go.

Take this, reverse it. I'm looking forward to the F31 328i, not really interested in a 335i version.

If not intersted in a more powerful car, why drive an M coupe when the 3.0 coupe could be had, or why not a 128i?

I think BMW would bring us, "The US" powerful wagons. and not base motor wagon. Hell if we can have a 550GT and X5 M why not a decently powered 3 series wagon.

thanks,

Second prior post, not very interested in a 4 cyl turbo wagon.

We need more power!!!!!

335i version is a must have, and i don't really care whether it's manual or auto. I need a replacement for my A4 Avant

Because I've owned an N54 and I'm not really in love with it.

Why drive a BMW when they make more powerful cars for less money? Sometimes balance is a good thing, and when did a 240hp car become less than decent power, especially for a station wagon?

Frankly, I'd like my sports cars to have a certain amount of overkill and my daily driver/family cars to be balanced and fit a set of needs, for hauling kids 300+hp and a lack of a limited slip isn't on my particular list.

This would be #1 on my list. I would take this in a heart beat. I loved my 335i with MT, but I need the utility so I have been considering an X3 with M Sport, but without an MT it makes it a compromise. Hopefully with no 535i wagon, they will consider a 335i wagon and with M Sport. Please BMW NA make it happen.

Who says a 3 series wagon can't be a sports car? In fact it is WAAAY more of a sports car than the X3 which is available with 300HP. I don't use my wagon to haul children and would like it to have some get-up-and-go, thank you very much. I ordered mine low-slung, no roof rails with M package so it "looks" the part. Better engine is all it is missing. It is asinine to saddle a heavier car with a four banger...

Would probably prefer the turbo 4 for MPG...

There's a guy in my neighborhood with two kids seats in the back of an E63 wagon that doesn't go easy on it, ever. Pretty funny. I don't really get it, I'd rather have a daily driver and a sports car, not try to make a wagon or an SUV a sports car, but clearly plenty of you like your wagons to try to pull double duty. I certainly don't oppose the choice of a 335i in addition to the 328i, I just personally have no interest in that motor and also think there's 0% chance we'd see it in the US.

I do however secretly wish they'd offer an M3 wagon, that I could get behind.

M3 Wagon. Now that's the perfect wagon for me.

Ok, I am cool with a N20 wagon, if we also had a choice of a M3 F31 as well.

My wife is going to stay home with the kids in another year or two, so I'll be downsizing from a 3 series and a Subaru Outback to just 1 car. I need 1 car that does it all - fun to drive, AWD, and storage space for the kids' stuff. While the X3 seems like a good fit, it's lacking in the "fun to drive" part. The wagon will be perfect though.

If we do get the F31, as long as 6-spd, M-sport, and those M-sport brakes are offered; I would be fine with the 328xi.
A tune, intake, exhaust; would bump the power quite close to 300. Not to mention the 328xi is lighter.

Edit: Really need a new workhorse, so hell, I'd settle for just a 328xi Sport-line in manual

It would be nice if you special order a F31 335i like BMW used to do 20 years ago, because dealers are not going to stock a vehicle like that in their inventory in the US. Besides, the SUV will be extinct in the next 10 years.

E91 looks better IMO, maybe that'll change when people start modding the F31.

You're right the E91 does look better, especially if it has the M Sport Package. The wagons really don't get the attention it deserves in the US, but as soon as manufacturers start cutting back on production of suv's it will start coming back. My favorite has always been the E30 Touring which never was imported to the US. The E30 Tourings are real collector items now like the E30 M3's if you can get on imported to the US.
