Convetional wisdom is that BMW has missed it's opportunity here. 1st it was mini vans, 2nd SUVs and the next will be station wagons. I guess what goes around comes around. I remember driving around in a wagon as a kid and it was fine. The fortunate part is that BMW makes some great wagons in Europe. If they would only import them. They make a great M5 wagon. There is even an E36 M wagon that never made it here as well. The only thing we saw was the 5 series wagon with a weak engine. There are hints that BMW recognizes this trend and may bring some of these wagons to the US. They got on the SUV kick to keep people with growing families from leaving the product line (even though they own Range Rover).
