They also made a 540 wagon-find one and put a Dinan supercharger kit if zero to sixty in 6.5 is too slow. And that's with a very tall rear gear. All us 540it's were automatic.

OMG! My uncle had one of those when I was in high school-- complete with aftermarket alloy wheels.

I had the Dasher hatchback; lots of room, but it didn't have the power to pull a sick whore off a pisspot.

I'm a station wagon convert.

My wife and I still own this car in Germany.

2007 Skoda Octavia. The build quality on this car is amazing.

Here she is the day we picked her up.

I do like the look (and huge size) of the new Superb estate (as we call station wagons over here)

deep down in the repressed psyches of these wagons, they all wish they were a Chevy truck.

That's a very nice looking car. The subtle changes sure did it right.

The real Octavia

Who knows what parts availability would be like, but it is very cool...

I just had a deer take out our '01 525i 5 speed wagon. It was still running well at 160k miles but starting to show it's age. Nice, comfortable, and fun to drive w/ a lot of features (heated steering wheels are almost as nice as heated seats). The 5 wagons are a little big and heavy - still got better than 21 mpg around town though.

We replaced it with an '01 325xi 5 speed. This one is in really nice shape w/ only 60k miles. Quite a bit smaller than the 5, still fun to drive, a few less gadgets, the sport package seats are v. nice (manual adjustment though), and having all wheel drive is great (all 2 wheel drive BMW's are terrible in snow). Gets about the same gas milage as the 5 did.

"deep down in the repressed psyches of these wagons, they all wish they were a Chevy truck." Neither one of these two wagons has a clue WTF you are talking about.

Interior space of an SUV with the mileage of a car (30 mpg mixed driving on the 325iT) and much cheaper insurance. I have always had a thing for wagons.....and I will drive these till they are dead....matched pair of silver and grey leather 2003's....a 525iT and 325iT.....too bad there isn't just one more series of them out there or I'd get another one...

Dang,

we've been looking for a 5-spd '00-'02 3 series wagon for a couple months now, all we've found is salvage titled rigs.

I found the 3-series to be MUCH more fun to drive than the 5s - they feel much sportier with their lighter weight/tighter track.
