Wait, where is news BMW will import only the 328xi wagon and only with the 8-speed automatic? Did I miss this? This car was going to be a freaking lock as long as it came with a 6-speed manual.

I'm a huge fan of THIS touring wagon - it's finally a good enough cargo volume to warrant a 3-series wagon, the interior and exterior are executed superbly. It's powerful even in base engine yet economical.

Hell, it's even very tunable in the event I should want more power, better handling, etc. one day.

It's damn near automotive valhalla.

Despite all that, the lack of a manual transmission is just brutal to me. It's enough to make me go test drive a 300 hp Porsche Cayenne which i can get in 6-speed manual and quite frankly has a pretty similar base price point.
