Yeah BMw should work on M version of BMW minivan....

Or R63 will kick BMWs ass :)

"Two AMG versions are being considered, the R 55 AMG with 370hp and an R 63 AMG with around 500hp. Both versions will have their top speed limited to 250km/h. A rumored 6.5L V12 with limited production is feasible if enough interest is generated"

I like it...looks aggressive and nowadays, a crossover type vehicle is a good thing whether many like it or not.
Not everyone likes a minivan because they are quite large....I certainly don't...and there are those that don't need a gas guzzling SUV (except the Escape Hybrid and Toyota Hylander Hybrid of course).

Because 90% of idiots in this city / country don't use it for it's purpose...bunch of power whores
same as ****ing mini vans, im glad their insurance is more than regular cars, it shud be 10x more.

i hate to burst your bubble but insurance on a truck is almost half of a car....

im only paying 675 a year for my 95 F-150 v8 4x4 comparied to my bmw...which on my own would be almost 7000 a year....

both have about same power... u tell me who's getting ripped off....

it would be more of like an MPV, instead of a traditional minivan. Ive heard sories about this several times, as back as about 1 year ago.

I heard this is Mercedes' version of the Pacifica. People will probably pay 20k more for it. Go figure.

it is true, i was at maranello today and i was talking to one of the managers and he said he got a memo that BMW will be developing 2 new markets they've never been in before, and i told him i saw a pic of a minivan looking bmw and he said chances are thats it.

As long as it's RWD and comes with a 6 or V8. If you are an enthusiast with a family- you'll seriously consider a BMW minivan when looking for a new family car.

Just like people said that Porsche's image is ruined because of the Cayenne, but Porsche sells more Cayennes than 911 or boxters combined- in the company's and stockholders point of view, they are making the money, and that is the bottom line.

BMW's image in the eyes of old time enthusiasts might be harmed, but if they sell more, they make more money, and that's the bottom line. Many think that Bangles recent designs are bad, but if you take a look at BMW's current annual report, vehicle sales have gone nothing but up, and have been for the past few years.

I thought I'd never say this but the Benz van looks nice... The new design for the BMW is absolutely disgusting and repulsive.. except for the 5 series. The BMW van in the pic looks U G L Y BUT those might be concept pics. Will there be a //M inivan package.. ;) ahahaha... tha'd be awesome.. soccer moms would rejoice *wiggle*
cant wait for the 1 series to hit North America...
ill be the first to own one

only reason new bmws sold was because rich people just wanted to show off their money and show that they have the latest and greatest thing on the market.

true to that.

bangle should be fired. the old 7 series looks should be reinstated
