2008 135i  [3.25]
So does this mean there will be a sedan, a wagon, the X3 and now this wagon on steroids or is something going to be quietly dropped?

Not my cup of tea, but don't quite get the hate. The era of the SUV is ending, people are going to want car-based platforms for utility purposes in the future.

Big SUV's may go the way of the dodo but smaller ones with ground clearance will probably not disappear in northern climates.

With the amount of snow we got in Vancouver this year and the past two, I can't see us being without a vehicle with higher ground clearance and AWD/4WD.

But, I would definitely not get the 3 series PAS. Yikes.
