This great news. I hope they make a 335is wagon with the 7 speed dsg and sell it in the US.
http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/12/2...-is-u-s-bound/The wagon is not dead! BMW has unveiled the latest 3 Series Sports Wagon and announced that it will again be available to U.S. customers. The new long-roof 3 goes on sale in Europe later this year as the 328i, 330d, and 320d Touring. U.S. customers need to wait until Spring 2013 for the 3 Series Sports Wagon to arrive in showrooms, and powertrain details for our market have not yet been announced. The current 3 Series wagon is only offered as the 328i here in the U.S. (with and without xDrive).
The new car is larger than the current model, and boasts 10 percent more cargo volume according to BMW. As with the 3 Series sedan, the wagon will be available in Sport, Luxury, and Modern lines, as well as an M Sport Line, each with a unique approach to their interior and exterior trim.
Inside, the back seats have a 40:20:40 split, and the cargo space offers plenty of room (as you can see in the photos). There's also hidden storage, a standard partition net, and if the cargo cover isn't in use, it can be stowed under the cargo floor for added convenience.
Amenities include an available power tailgate that, with the optional Comfort Access package, becomes a hands-free power tailgate; you just wave your foot under the bumper a la the new Ford Escape. Naturally, BMW will offer its full complement of tech and driver aids, like BMW Apps, a color HUD, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, BMW Parking Assistant, Rear-view Camera with Top View, and the BMW Assist telematics service.
So, the good news: new 3 Series wagon. The bad news: you need to wait a year. But that's better than no wagon at all, right.

Very excited about this. 328i with 6sp I hope if not the 8sp auto is ok but dream wagon would be the 335i with 7sp DCT
Miss my mk5 gti,e28 535is, mk3 jetta, mk2 jetta coupe, mk1 rabbit gti:, 67 type one bug,will always be on the look out for another e28 or fb or fc rx7.
With chrome grills the new 3 series looks HORRIBLE. I mean, when you make a car look SO bad that the car from 2 generations ago suddenly looks like Jesus Christ himself delivered the best looking car upon us, crafted by god and the devil, you've done something wrong.
Black grills improves the looks 170 million percent, and they should ONLY be black.

The X1 could have easily taken place for the 3 series wagon in the U.S. But it looks like wiser heads prevailed. Lookin' at the prices, it looks like there's enough of a price difference between the two for the U.S. market.
The previous gen. 3 series wagon started at $37,000 and the xDrive starts at $39,500.
The X1 28i starts at $31,545, the xDrive28i $33,245 and the xDrive35i is $39,345.
