Jon, is it a done deal that we'll only get the 325xit in the US?

325iT will be here as well

I don't think it's the answer you are looking for but according to Ken Bracht at the 3AcrossAmerica tour we will see the 325iT and the 325xiT.

not bad looks a bit e61ish from the rear. Too bad still no 330, see what aftermarket can do with the detuned 3.0l though.


Edit: oh man, just noticed the sunroof, looks like one of those huge panorama ones and I assume not option to remove

It does look pretty small.

Overall I think it looks pretty good and am impressed we are even going to see a 3 series wagon on US soil. I thought the X3 would have sealed its doom.

I have to admit that I feel the same way.

Too bad AWD only. I want to see what BMW is going to do with the next MINI in wagon guise, as right now I'm REALLY interested in that.

And you comment on this wagon having a small cargo area! I bet a Mini wagon would still be barely usable...in coupe form its almost not worth the space

Wrt the E90, the wagon looks better than the sedan (imo).

Does anyone know if this is confirmed that we only get AWD?
Also can we get a stick?

I like it. The back, which is the worst part of E90 sedan, looks good on a wagon. I'm feeling it. I really wonder how big the cargo area is since the trunk on E90 is supposedly bigger than on E46 then I figure touring should improve over its predecessor as well.

Well, I'm willing to compromise on cargo space if I move to a MINI, obviously. But I've come up with a test of sorts to see if it would be acceptable.

The E46 wagon has much more capacity than I imagined, though. My latest was hauling a loveseat without having to move the front seats up. Be interesting to see if the overall size increase on the E90 makes up for the smaller-looking cargo area.

Oops, my bad. US will get iT and xiT, in AT and MT, but 325 only as with the E46.

Sweet! So we can get rear-wheel drive, 6-spd manual, with sport package!

I thought we were only getting 325xit in the US? Has this been revised recently and we are getting RWD as well - any source for this info?
