Not in the US, where BMW has abandoned the wagon market except for the 3 series. I would buy a G31 in a flash if they imported them here.

i have one in scotland - traded in my 525D F11 - its a better handling car than the first one simply more balanced and turns in and out of corners without the hippo wallowing the last one use to do- the cockpit is unbelieveable - every toy you could imagine - from a driving point of view I use a P-Tronic tune box to make it gruntier from down low - simply a great car - as a 520D tho i miss the extra power I had in the 525 (I tihnk the 525 is about 60kg heavier with a massive turbo compared to the 520D) plus don't believe for one second the economy is any better - it isnt. In a bid to save weight they have done away with lots of things including the heavy stop you every time brakes - the new brakes - lots of fade v early on - anyone else experienced this?

The F31 3-Series touring will depart the US market following the release of the all new G20 3-Series.

I would have considered the F31 but it was poorly packaged and too expensive for the US market. No 6-cyl or RWD options and much less a manual transmission.

I'll be ordering a UK model :-) Thanks!
I have a 520d Touring (UK). There are power sockets as follows: one in the front console (in front of the gear lever, between the cup holders), one in the centre arm rest, one at the back of the centre console (near the floor, below the rear ventilation vents), and one in the boot (on the right hand side I think)

BMWUSA is making a huge tactical mistake by keeping the G31 off the US market.

Manuals are going away. Just a fact of life. Not enough demand. But wagons? Come on BMW, now you will have no wagons at all in the US! Not everybody wants an SUV. We have an E class wagon because BMW 5 series wagon imports stopped with the E61. There seems to be enough demand for MB to import them. It isn't as if they need new tooling, just the will the bring them over.

Unhappy

I have got a G31, but sadly the wiper sensor is not working properly. Does anyone know how to fix it?

"Wrong Way warning system" We don't have that in US I don't believe. Wish they could read stop signs like speed signs to warn driver

MB E450 4Matic wagon is spectacular. Twin turbo big V6... real fast. Great interior & features. But, yes wagons are dwindling to SUV madness, even though these beautiful wagons have larger carrying capacity that many SUVs. Much more design style as well. Got a 2019 for ~$70K. Stunner is the E63 Wagon... a dazzling, loaded rocket on wheels.
This BMW wagon looks to be good competition.But BMW wants volume sales.
