Apologies if this is a repost but I hadn't seen a thread about it. From a BMW NA meeting recently:



I'm guessing four cylinder in the 3-series and X3, six cylinder the in X5, 5-series, and 7-series.

The news of a diesel wagon is especially interesting and should get some TCLers pretty excited.

2.0 or 3.0 in the 3 series? I'm betting 2.0. :thumbdown:

I hope it's the 2.0. The performance diesel thing didn't translate into a runaway sales success in E90 form...would be nice if the diesel was focused on being the fuel economy leader.

Diesel 3-series wagon. TCL just had a collective 'gasm.

Until it's auto or AWD only, and then they won't buy it.

The diesel wagon indeed has me excited
That seems like a good idea for BMW to offer. Its only competition is the cheaper non luxury Jetta Sportswagon TDI. Even though wagons are niche in the US there is still a market for luxury wagons. I saw alot of Mercedes wagons when I was up in Connecticut.

Luxury wagons still have a place, especially in New England. I'd be on board to look into a diesel wagon in a few years. A wagon is definitely in the plans, it's just a matter of them being available or even sold in Merica.





I'd throw them all out the door for the opportunity to lease this. Wouldn't care if it was auto only either, I love the new 5 series.

I WILL get a new 3'er diesel wagon when it's released...

Now, who wants my LGT wagon? :D

i'd rock that in a heartbeat (especially if dirty fuel was in the mix)
Dunno. The new 5-series is pretty Lexus-y, and it feels very much like the SWB 7-series that it is. Which is fine, but disappointing given that the 5-series has historically not been a numb, cushy cruiser.
