It's the perception of the coupe being cooler and more desirable.

I'd bet a good German lager that the M3 costs more to produce.

Back to the beet farm for you, naysayer! ;)

But they DID reserve an internal code for just such a wagon, and the Germans don't mess around with things like that.

Because I've always wanted an M3, and I'm not getting any younger.

Doesn't make any sense.

Which is a big part of the fun! ;)

M3 Wagon?!

February's Car & Driver article notes "If M builds a wagon, it'll be F81".

Is there hope?

Or is this just nonsense?

Well-plowed winter roads, only, though. Not much ground clearance!

This month's Car & Driver said something to the effect of "will need to stay under $65k", so I'll fearlessly predict $69.9.

That's without paint, or any other superfluous options, of course!

Stick or auto?

If stick, no regrets.

If auto, you may now officially begin the period of regret.

Never have I regretted selling a car as much as my 128 6MT!

I've owned both, and the E36 back seat is noticeably larger than the 128. It's not a huge difference, but it is significant, IMO. Also, roll down windows are really nice for back seat passengers.
