Yeah, I know that once one takes into account the different paint colors and interior options (e.g., leather colors) the number of variations is huge; but I was actually just looking for info on basic models (e.g., 2008 MT E91). Somewhere I read that BMW was only anticipating importing a relatively small number of wagons (under 2000) and a very small percentage (in the low hundreds) of those would be MT models...but that was anticipated, not actual numbers. I was hoping that once a year was complete they'd publish the actual numbers somewhere.
