      im not a huge fan of wagons (hatchs are where my heart is) but i drive an 07 passat wagon. i dont have a use for it, as in kids and a dog and groceries to put in it but its nice and theres definitely alot of room. i love love love A3s, but those are more hatches. they definitely got a little wagon feel going on there though, i like

      I would totally buy a wagon. Preferably one with AMG, "M" or "S" on the back.

      Yeah, I didn't mean like half totaled... just an accident/fender bender. Awesome car you've got. I wish BMW sent some over like that because I'd be driving one right now.

      I looked at some CTS wagons the other day for fun, I really really REALLY want one of those. Of course my dream one would be the CTS-V wagon.

      Would a 1978 Chvy Impala wagon that had a LT1 transplanted into it count as a sports wagon?

      Im with you on this one. I live outside in NoVa where property values are bordering robbery. Add that to ****ty teacher salary and you have not a lot of money. I could probably afford a townhouse 20 to 30 miles outside of where I currently live and work but then my commute would be over an hour each way so I choose to live in a condo with no garage or driveway in exchange for retaining my mental sanity. Im an enthusiast and love my cars and trucks BUT not enough to live further out and get home every day exhausted and pissed off from the traffic. Unless Va decides to jump my pay scale up big time, thats the way it is going to be for the foreseeable future. When I need to do some work, I drive that 20 to 30 miles out to friends or my parents places where I can use their garage or driveway for a weekend. No big deal really. Do I dream of the day where I can have a 2 car, or 1.5 car, garage and a driveway of some sort? Hell yeah I do BUT its not worth the brain melting commuter traffic in my area to get it. I am not alone and it doesnt make me any less of an "enthusiast" than Merc/ Chris. What you live in has nothing to do with whether youre an enthusiast or not. Hell, what you drive doesnt either. There are plenty of people with high end sports cars who couldnt point out a lug nut if you asked them too (and they probably have 4+ car garages).

      As for the argument of new vs. many used, in my experience, many used is cheaper but for me, all the cars have been old enough that the State sees them as worth nothing. Example, the PPT bill on the Cruiser was $60 for the entire year and insure was laughable.


      Ive owned 2 wagons (not sports) and loved both of them: 09 Outback and 05 allroad. Fiance liked the Outback so much she just traded her MKV in for a 12 Outback Limited

      Wagons are the best. Can't wait until mine is ready to hit the road again... just some re-assembly left, but I'm still waiting on some parts Should be ready by Wednesday, though

      ^Nice!

      I'm pretty sure I posted earlier but here's the most recent of my Impreza. I love this car more and more every day. Fun to drive, ridiculously practical and easy to work on/maintain.

      It depends whats on the market wagon wise in 10 years from now. Currently the wagons I like that are on sale in the US are the Audi A4 Avant, Jetta Sportswagon TDI and 328i Touring.

      While I agree it's not a huge car it's a wagon. There is a window behind the c pillar and there is a d pillar. there is a wagon version of the golf too btw. I always wanted a mk3 Golf variant.
