I believe they sell or use to sell a 3 series M Sport Estate in Europe and Britain. Unfortunately, because 95% of the US call them "grannie wagons"... BMW never brought them across the Atlantic.

It's also the reason BMW quit bringing the 5 series estate / touring into the US.

Check out the Touring variants available in Great Britain:

Unfortunately, since Americans prefer the SUV to the wagon, it doesn't make economic sense for BMW to import the more interesting ones anymore. As Walt Kelly said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

The actual reason is that they would rather you bought an X something in the States. They make far more profit on them, and Americans just love station wagons on stilts for more money.

If you look at older posts regarding this, you'll note that BMW has never sold more than 3200 3-series wagons in any year (highest point was for E46 sales). Sales only went down further for E91.

It costs over $5,000,000 to certify a single model for US sale. There aren't sales enough to justify it - BMW would have to jack the price a lot to make back their investment.

A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
