Have you seen any F31 on the road?

I finally saw a F31 on the road in Seattle while biking. It was an Estoril Blue. People here in the Pacific Northwest love wagons but they are not showing a lot of love for BMW wagons. There are tons of Subaru, VW and Audi wagons but very few Bimmers.

The only F31 I've ever seen on the road is my own. I've been to probably a dozen dealers in different parts of the country and have seem maybe six total, all of them on dealer lots except for mine. Most dealers in MA don't even have one to look at. I'm not sure why BMW is hardly importing any, but it is rather interesting to drive such a rare car. Mine's a diesel and I've never seen a 328d wagon anywhere. It's nice getting 40 MPG too.

the US has their SUVs and the rest of the world has their wagons.. i guess that's just how it goes.. it's a shame they're not more popular here. i think they look quite nice.

I've seen maybe 3 or 4. An imperial blue luxury line, a mineral gray sport, and one or two black sapphire (may have seen this one twice).
I once saw 4 random E91's in the parking lot behind some stores (Laurel Village) near me. I think the proportion of wagons here in San Francisco is higher than anywhere else in the US, indicating our good taste.
(The concentration of Prius is also very high here. )

When my Mineral Gray F31 arrives hopefully later this month or early next month, there will be one more Bimmer wagon on the road in Seattle

Have you seen any F31 on the road?

i've only seen my own :/ (alpine white m sport). this is definitely the land of subaru and audi wagons. every now and then i think i see a f31 but it always ends up being an acura wagon which looks somewhat similar from behind (tsx?).

Bought my F31 in Nov and did some road trips up to Philly from the Washington, DC area with none spotted. The dealers around here usually would have one each.

Washington, DC usually has a fair share of wagon owners due to the large number of European transplants, but I haven't spotted any F31s...so far.
