Wagon Trail Masters Report In Here

Haven't had a dedicated wagon thread on the forum for a while so it would be interesting to hear from those who still have their E91, or even from those who ditched (yeah, that would be you my old friend LMC ) or crashed it, and have since hitched their horses to another model.

Our 2011 Space gray/saddle brown (perfect match for this thread) M Sport has just over 20k miles on it, and is a thrill to drive.

It's the little frau's weekend ride/grocery grabber and the family vacation car.

Not long ago we took a ride down to the Tennessee area and it was a real blast driving it. The sport suspension is a real gem in that it rotates through curves at high speed with aplomb. My wife didn't holler at me even once the whole trip to slow down (which probably only shows that riding in the 1 has desensitized her a bit). So my master plan is coming together nicely (neeyaw-ha-ha).

And even the RFT's don't reek, so I can't rag on them like I used to. I even curbed a rim while down there and was worried I'd cut into the sidewall, but it took the hit without issue.

All-in-all this car is a massive hit. I see no reason whatsoever to move to the F31 any time soon (if at all).

Here she is with somewhat recent snows adornment.

What's the skinny with the rest of you raw hide types..........still happy with your speed wagon, or is the bloom off the rose somewhat?

We have over 170K km on our 2007 E91 and it is still a solid car with no major problems. My experience with early RFTs was poor. They caused a symptom called 'tramliing' which went away when we switched to normal tires.

We find the car excellent for cruising. We have run the Oregon coast and Newfoundland with enjoyment due to sport suspension and good seats. The car is also comfortable for multiple 10 hour days on express highways. Best of all it has a long roof line which supports our sea kayaks safely even when running at 120 kph on the highway.

There is good reason why this form factor of car is popular in Europe and why it beats out a mini van for enjoyment and function.

We consider our E91 to be a longterm 'keeper'.
