Touring BMWs

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...)

E30


E34


E36


E46


E39


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).
