Kaz said:Problem with the red car is that the lines are all WRONG. Both are photoshop jobs but the red one really bothers me. Front door is a cut-down coupe one with no windowframes, no extra quarterwindow in the rear door, wrong rear door cutline, , wrong rear side window (modded coupe one? look at the pop-out attachment), coupe trunklid with a fake non-opening hatch pasted in.
The only problem I see on the white one is the bumper reflectors and possibly that it has Brilliantline window trim instead of Shadowline, but then I'm being nitpicky.

You could aways get a gray market model though
Ah... but you're forgetting something...
The E36 M3/4 sold very well in the US. In the two years it was available, it outsold the M3/2 by a good margin. That implies taht there is clearly a market here for a practical sports car. Many people who cannot get the coupe and would prefer the sedan would likely still buy the wagon. And all the wagon loonies would snap them up.
And the SUV backlash is building. What better to haul the kids around in once SUVs become passe? Not that I'd want one to appeal to these people, but I do think these wagons will be fashionable very soon.
I wasn't referring to the 4 door, I think a 4 door M3 would sell very well, but I'm not so sure about the wagon....

I'm referring to a sort of "runner-up" appeal for those who would have bought sedans and who cannot get by with only two doors.
I still think it would sell well enough to justify certification. Plus, I want one.
Ever since I read this earlier today, I've been pondering how to pull it off in 2 years or so when it shows up.
