So there could be a saloon M3, a coupe and convertible M4, and M4 GC and now possibly an M3 GT. Which, whilst that is very exciting...

It seems a little daft that the one car variant then that won't be made is be the one that filled so many niches in one - a tourer.

Very fast, you can put the dogs and family in it and lug loads and not have to pay for folding seats as an option. I can see why Audi made the RS4 avant.

Does anyone make a dog kennel roof rack for the M3?

Across the Pond, avants connote a 'Clark Griswold' persona.

Out of all the models the touring would be the worst selling... We don't know the 3GT's numbers yet but if the 5GT was any indication we know the 3GT should sell better than the touring. Wouldn't be surprised to see a M3 touring last if even at all.

Yeah but that's the US and I understand why you'd say that.

However in the UK estates/tourers/avants whatever you want to call them are very popular indeed with our lot. You can see by the resale value of bimmer 3 tourers how much of a demand there is for them, they are a lot dearer second hand than saloons/sedans.

I guess just have to keep fingers crossed for an M Performance 340i/d tourer at some point or an ///M Dog Rack

Maybe they're sizing it up against the M5 that it's facing, maybe a monster M3GT with V8?

Clark Griswold's dog leash didn't quite do the job right, did it?

Hahahahahahaha

I haven't seen the films for years but he drags the dog behind the car right?

I hope I don't have to do that just to prove to BMW we need a performance tourer here... I think I just heard one of the dogs bark 330d or something to that effect??

My money is on a beefy twin/tri turbo diesel tourer as that would sell well in Europe, I'd settle for that as I cannot justify (or probably afford) an M3/4 as my next car.

Actually you might be on to something there!

///MM would be a great name for the *rumoured* supercar

Then next time round in another 40 years it could be the ///MMM but that's starting to sound like a Simpson-mobile
