I dunno but I'm starting to like them more over the sedans..I think it would be the only ultimate pimp mobile... I wonder why no one buys them. I would take one over a sedan as a family mover (since the target audience are people who have families...)

My favourite one is the E36. E39s are rare here too, and I really like how they look. I wonder why they don't make 7-Series touring...

I donno.. I think the touring models are great if you need lots of room for kids and stuff. They look handle and drive almost as good as a sendan or coupe. I guess people like there clunky minivans and useless SUV's ?

And maybe the weight distribution would be better?

No offence to any of you touring owners.. cuz everyone has their own taste and im sure a lot of you would never spend the 55 grand i did for an s2000.. but i think they are really ugly.. i'd rather have a coupe/sedan ANYDAY over a touring..

Tourings are sweet, you gotta see them modified. They are awesome.

Btw Adam, this Touring will eat your S2000 alive, it has 321hp Can you say sleeper?
Btw 55k is a good price for a roadster like S2k, i think it is priced very well, so IMO spending 55k on S2K is a good deal.
What other good roadster can you get for 55k? Nothing.

well maybe it isnt as good looking as S2K, but sleeper cant look mean. For example, Randy's Civic Wagon. It looks like shit, but it was an ultimate sleeper.

I wish e36 touring were available in canada, I would have stopped at nothing to get one:(

I love done up tourings, especially when they're lowered. So much room, and they have the potential of going fast, and aren't really respected for going fast (minus the RS4).

how can you compare an M5 to an S2K?
if you want to compare honda vs bmw cars.. at least be a BIT more fair.. and put NSX and M5.. (even though the m5 is still better.. there is a bit more comparison at least)

i agree with aschon

i really dislike the tourings but thats just my opinion

and the s2k is one sick car, wish i had money for it

yah I would definitely never pay that kind of money for a station wagon.. that one vlad (sickfinga) posted all done up is really nice.. but if you lower and slap big rims on any car it's going to look decent with a nice paint job..

well you know why suped up civics are rice and shit??
EVERYBODY HAS THEM.

Thats why when you suped up a station wagon, make it sick and fast. How many suped up sedan and coupe are out there? tonns.
that why suped up station wagon are cool, cause uniqueness adds more coolness to it then to a usual coupe/sedan.

I consider it "like the civic should have been".

M coupe = more NASCAR than any current Pontiac:D

M coupe = more sports car than any M3 (ever):moon:

M coupe = more touring than any family car ever built:cool:

ok... I'm giving props to my own car:D

e30 suspension, wasn't my opinion it is a fact.

If you want my opinion on M Coupe. here it is.

I think it is soooooooo nice. some people say it looks like a boot(well it does) some people say it looks like a penis (Betray said that, kick his ass) but i think it is one of the best looking cars out there.

e36 multilink rear suspension was a sweet thing that's for sure and the subframe thing is hugely over emphasized. I loved the high speed turns in my old '97 328i.

we should return to posting about true tourings at this point.
