I am ashamed to admit this but...

I almost bought a '06 BMW 530xi wagon today and I might tomorrow. Metallic black with auburn (dark camel/black) two tone interior. Mint condition with 9k miles. A friend of friend offered it for a couple grand above trade in. The car was so smooth riding I thought it was the base suspension, but low and behold I looked at the orig window sticker and it has the sport sus., sport seats, pano roof, heated steering wheel, bluetooth, parking sensors, and a power rear tailgate. All the things my current daily driver has on it.
Still thinking, never owned a wagon before but the 50/50 weight distribution would be nice.

You will really like it and that color combo is great.

Wagons are great. I have a Volvo V50 and an 81 300TD Benz. Love 'em.

^Right front corner tweaked, port hole sucks, wheels are unusual. Not good enough.

To paraphrase..
A pimping friend of friend offered it for a couple grand above trade in. The broad was so smooth riding I thought it was the bed suspension, but low and behold I looked at the orig tag and ... All the things my current daily driver (you mean you already have a daily driver tsk tsk tsk) has on it.
Still thinking, never owned a wagon (what's a wagon) before but the 50/50 ( I prefer a 30/70 myself) weight distribution would be nice.

What do you think about sex ?
