Nice! And definitely rare. Only a couple hundred ZSP 6-speed wagons imported each year. And BMW USA will no longer sell you a new 6-speed wagon.

(But Alpine white is the fastest color :D.)

I would think selling just about anything with 80,000 miles on it for $19k would be a tough sell.

With a budget of $19k, a buyer has the option of buying a brand-new Toyota, Honda or Hyundai with...

I considered the 535iT when shopping. The price, equipped the way I would have wanted it, was up in the silly zone. For something that is, after all, a utilitarian station wagon. I decided on the...

That's also my guess -- that BMW made an excellent profit. Also, that they will continue to make excellent profits from the E90 since they have stopped making them and warranties are expiring.

IIRC, with AWD and ZSP you get the sport seats (and wheels?) but lose the sport suspension pieces. (Plus there are twice as many things in the driveline to break.)
