I think a better example would be say, hauling several boxes of computer equipment. Here the M5 wagon would have an edge over the M3. The wagon would have extra room in the back over the M3s trunk.

Isn't there a new race series where you have to haul boxes of computer equipment around a winding course? If I'm not mistaken these races are sponsored by Microsoft.

Well you make good points but how about hookers? You can stack them lengthwise in the M5 Touring.... You might get only 6 in the M3. A clear victory for the M5 Touring.

Yep, clear win for the M5 there.

I remember the E61 M5 vs. AMG Station Wagon race on Top Gear last season, and the AMG spanked the M5. Damn, do not race a station wagon or you will look stupid. :-)

Ok , verification from Gustav. He did start in first gear but he think it would be better off if he had started in second gear becuase he didnt make a good gearchange between first and second gear.
