People who care about dynamics don't want the slower version. Give us the bigger engines!
I definitely agree with this. I see people posting up their 3 series wagons and personally, I don't get it. Why would I want a low performance BMW? It would be cool if BMW offered a wagon in true M form, but I don't think they'd need to. Particularly for something like a wagon version of the current 3 series, I think if BMW offered a 340 wagon with a manual, that would raise some eyebrows. You have the wagon people who would like it for its wagon form and other people who might be interested because it's the only way to get a manual in a non-M product. So yeah, probably 20 people would buy one per year.

I drive a wagon but they are all but dead in north america. White middle and upper middle class women decide what i sin and what is out and they despise wagons and will take the SUV 99% of the time.

What anyone else thinks is meaningless. It's the same reason massive three row SUV sell way, way better than minivans despite the minivan being the obviously better vehicle in every conceivable way except for towing .. and except for the fact white women hate them.
