Was the 1996 525iT (Wagon) still an E34?

Another newb question--I saw a CL ad for a 1996 Touring--and to my newb eyes it looked identical to the 1995s. (Of course, I can't find it now--the pic posted is a different one from a CL ad also advertised as a 1996...)

Did they delay the changeover on the wagon in the US? (I did look at the Wikipedia article--but it includes ROW--it does say e34 to 1996--but does not say where...)

Yes, they stopped making the touring in June of 1996, all other models stopped in December of 1995.

no its still 100% E34. The same goes for all of the rarer body styles e.g. 3 series conertables were usually sold alongside the next gen sedans for at least 12 months, also M3/M5, and most of the wagon variants.

E30 above Sold
