    I'm thinking fuel injection would be a big improvement over dual square bore quads.

    This 928 piques my interest, I've seen other 'Stangs done similarly.

    One week in, including a fly & drive of ~1400 miles, all I can say is: I LOVE THIS CAR (2011 328i auto with several M sport options, 36K miles as I accepted it). These will be the last I share of it here so as to not pollute this excellent thread.

    928 Shooting Brake was Porsche's concept that eventually turned into 4dr Panamera some years later...

    E90/1-2-3 is one of the last "ultimate driving machines" platforms. The successor F3X wasn't as good - good for you for finding a good E91 example!

    I so badly wanted E91 335d (wagon body) w 6sp manual RWD but that wasn't ever going to happen from factory - sedan E90 and auto was all I could do which isn't what I wanted... :bluduh

    You people & your SUVs......those are not & never will be station wagons. A station wagon is almost always an offshoot body of an existing sedan. Hatchbacks sorta fall into that category too.....& some (but not all) convertibles.
    However...I do realise that the term SUV came about looooong after the first Range Rover..or Suburban...or.....etc (more truck based vehicle)

    All others are not - they aren't labeled as "station wagon" thus don't qualify as such... :lol3
