This is why!? E91 tourings are the best blend of utility, performance and handling. Looks super cool too IMHO esp with the roof rail delete! I couldn't think of a better wagon for the price on the market today.

Maybe another Chicago expat in the NW ? I moved here two years ago - completely agree on the roof rail delete, I love how clean my roof looks. I got the Thule 460's and the Aeroblades though for when stuff needs to go up there, but they go on and off in about a minute.

Like post #2..it's cultural. It's a Euro thing, I like seeing it out here but most people just don't think they're cool out here personally I LOVE them.

My wife grew up in Downers Grove/Woodridge suburbs of Chicago so of course our boy is confused with sports teams. He says he's a Seahawk fan which makes me happy. I love the Bears too, just not this year. LOL

Here's the beautiful thing about this thread. It presents a clear case that in 30 years when my son is my age, he will be driving my 6sp/sports/premium/premium sound 328xi E91 and it will be a collectable. I have a 7.5 km commute and aside from my weekend joy rides my current 25k will tick off the k's very slowly. The m-sport will be number one on the list of course but it will be a hit at the local car shows in 2043! Sorry to the idrive/Nav folks but I don’t think they will be worth as much as the non’s. Kind of like the 8 track players (unsupported/outdated technology) and if you remove/mod it you are no longer stock. Just a thought, I might start a new thread on that. After I do a search for a similar topic.

Picked up my E91 330d last weekend and it's an absolute monster.. the view through the rear view mirror of hot hatch / coupe driver's faces when they are annihilated by a diesel tourer is priceless

I have been lusting after an e91 for a couple of years now. I've had a couple 3 series in the past, a '95 325is and an '05 330i. I loved them both. I think having the utility of a wagon with the 3 series drivability would be a great combo. And to top it off, I think they can look fantastic - but need a little tweaking so they don't look too much like a soccer mom mobile. It's a shame they they aren't available as a 330/335, but there's always the the intake manifold conversion.

They seem to be much more common in SF. They have 4 at the local dealer. I test drove one just the other day, and now I'm thinking of tracking down the right one.

I went through the thread but haven't seen the pictures yet... there is a stunning looking grey E91 with black VMR V710 style wheels on it: I've seen it in the Boynton area before. Drool worthy. Next time I spot it I'll have to take some pictures.

I'm sure they were surprised when you pulled away. Looks like we are getting Diesels in our touring here in the states but only with AT, but that's not a deal breaker for me! Congratulations on your new ride and welcome to the forum!

because it looks like a station wagon and people have a bad connotation of those. I always think of the ones with the wood paneling on the side.

I miss my wagons. Went to Germany last year. Got a bad case of wagon envy.
A few pics for the fans:
