This only means that it will go into production and not that the US will actually get it.

That's what I thought, but I believe that post is specifically about US-spec models.

I would be interested in 330i Touring Sport. Not likely that it would reach these shores though. BMW is pushing the X3 rather hard. Too bad for them.

I wonder how much more the Touring weights than the Sedan?

Edit: oh man, just noticed the sunroof, looks like one of those huge panorama ones and I assume not option to remove
i personally think that panorama sunroof will be great, i mean have you rode in a x5 with one? looks wise, i know where you are coming from but who really has people looking from the top all the time?

Looks like a small E61.

I would rather have a 535dT, or a 545iT.

Taillights still look Japanese, but I wouldn't mind that 330d...

Is the AWD version xDrive, like the rest of the E90 models?

jon was right on the money

"This latest generation sports wagon will initially be available in the U.S. as a 325xi model. Its xDrive all-wheel drive system endows it with remarkable traction and agility. The all-new 3 Series Sports Wagon family will expand in 2006 with the introduction of a rear wheel drive version."

So this is an "E90 touring"?

Why, then, is there a car just called the "E61"? (we've already discussed that there is no "E60 touring".

Or, is this thread about the "E91"?


Also, if the RWD 3-touring is introduced in 2006, does the detuned "2.5" preclude it from coming with SMG?

I think it's E91, with E92 as coupe and E93 as convertible. Emphasis on the "I think."

Make it a 330xit and I'm in. Why does BMW continue to only offer the 2.5 in the wagon? Ugh

During 3 across America I asked the product manager about the touring and he said that the US will get 325it (rwd) for sure next year but it will for sure not get 330it (or xit for that matter.)
The first thing he asked me when I asked if/when we are going to get rwd version was: "You are not American, right?" I think this pretty much explains it...

Because Americans are not Europeans - they don't apparently want wagons.........frustrating I agree.

Same basic reason the 1 series will not be offered in the US in the full range.

A 330 wagon would make me consider an alternative to the X3 especially with the newer X-drive tech on the E90's. I also l personally love the look compared to the sedan or coupe versions of the E90.

On a related note...I saw the Jaguar X-type AWD wagon in a parking lot here today. A Jaguar station wagon....hmm.....what's next...the Jaguar SUV? Do all the Euro carmakers have to build one of everything now?
