The feedback from the US on the M3 Touring isn't noise. No one needs a new M3. We want to buy one to fulfill our travel and mobility needs. I have a F80 and a F97 and I'm holding for a G81.

This is an opportunity for BMW M to connect with us and I want to connect with a new M3 Touring.
Well put. BMW is listening by building an M3 wagon but not importing it to the US is disappointing as an enthusiast.

If this poll is an accurate picture of the market they will sell 1 vert for every 23 wagons

Which I personally wouldn’t mind, the 4 series vert looks quite horrendous in pictures. Really awkward rear proportions.

I would quickly trade my F80 in for a G80 wagon.

As we all have probably heard, the rumor is that the upcoming G81 M3 won't be offered in the US market for various reasons. I was already debating about the idea of starting a new thread to show BMW and BMW USA the potential interest from the US buyer about the G81. After seeing couple other similar thoughts in the other G81 thread and hearing from Jason that they would support this initiative, I decided to start this thread which will hopefully serve as a petition to bring G81 M3 to the US.

In addition to the answering the poll, please feel free to post your thoughts about why BMW and BMW USA should offer the G81 here in the States. I understand this is not something official with hard commitments from people but I believe it will be good indicator of the potential interest.

Let's make this happen!

If this comes I will order a highly optioned individual British racing green over tan interior... Think of all that profit BMW lol

I guess this pole really shows M4 Vert owners aren't usually enthusiasts (therefore not on the forums) and on the opposite end the high choice of the wagon shows that BMWs core enthusiasts really like the idea of a wagon... put profit aside and make a product for the people who actually advocate and interact with your company in my opinion.

I still miss my F31. One of the best dailies I ever had. Even had the leather dash! Would have replaced it if they brought one here. An ///M version would be perfection.

And they will likely want some other mug to take the initial depreciation hit.

I will continue to post on every thread for this, this is the only way BMW is getting my money. I will buy a G81, I will not buy any of the other options. Hope this works!
