I hate the entire idea of the 3GT (and, btw, me saying I hate it is not the same as saying BMW shouldn't build it and others' shouldn't opt for it - I'm talking about my personal preferences). I just don't get the point. It seems like this is a vehicle for people who need a wagon, but just don't like the idea of owning a wagon.
Man up! If your lifestyle demands a wagon (as mine does), just get it. Besides, realistically, BMW wagons are practically hatchbacks as it is because the swoopy styling seriously detracts from the available storage. I'm OK with that, because I love being able to haul my bike and camping equipment while still feeling good about the look of the vehicle, but it is not like we are dealing with a Volvo station wagon here. The Touring already makes compromises.
