Mein Auto: 1999 540iT/2003 M3 Cab
What about a 540iT? 290hp. Drives as well as the sedan. Nice wagon.

I have both the M3 and 540iT, so I'd be happy to answer any questions.

You could likely do a no cash swap. I just bought a perfect, loaded (nav, dsp, homelink, etc) 2003 540iT for around $27K

The S4 Avant is interesting, but a little small for what you want. And it is not a BMW.

Oh, and the 540iT is a steptronic (basically the same as the Tiptronic). I honestly don't find it that great to shift though. Better to put it in Sport mode. Heck with the DSC off, it will flat MELT the rear tires.

And VF-Engineering makes a sweet SC kit for $6K. It's on my Christmas list.
