I currently live in the UK, and driving home from work Friday I followed a Saphire Black '02 330iT with sport package. It looked sweet! I am not a fan of the type 72 wheels, but they looked really good on the wagon. Here in the UK, the SP also includes the M front spoiler, so the new headlight design was really enhanced by the agressive spoiler.
I thought it was a custom badging job, so I went to the BMW UK website, and sure enough there it was...
Yesterday, when scheduling a service appt at the dealer, they were prepping a 530 Touring for delivery.
Ahh...to only get one or the other in the US:banghead: For me either would be the perfect family-mobile. The 540 is way out of my tax bracket and I yearn for a little more hp then what the 2.5L delivers.
I realize that in the US one would steal sales from the other, but I would think that there would be a real interest for at least the 530 Touring, esp if they used it to replace the 525 Touring.
