I never understood why station wagons were not popular in the States. In Europe you see sporty station wagons from BMW, Mercedes, Audi or others all the time. Even Jaguar is offering a station Wagon version of the x-type. They combine usefulness and driving pleasure.

Americans have a bad stereotype of sport wagons. We also have huge massive roads and straight highways. We also have cheap gas.

Quicksilver will become famous soon enough
They used to be . But that was before the SUV'. I have always liked the BMW touring and it was on my radar before the X.

I'm looking forward to them! I hope they become avail in the U.S. w/o speical ordering and shipping. I see tons of the Merc E63 Wagons and I think BMW want's to take some of that market (limited but growing).

Another vehicle that won't hit the US shores...I read an article about the M5 touring in last weeks AutoWeek...BMW is going to keep getting their butts kicked by Benz if they don't increase the hp and bring some of these beautiful rides state side.
