Petition To Bring BMW M3 Wagon To The US Won't Work


We know it sucks. We’ve reported on the M3 Touring petition before. But BMW has laid out some very concise reasons it won’t be happening, even with the petition having gained significant traction over the last two years. Signers say they’ll place a deposit today if BMW brings over this new fast wagon, but their pleas fall on deaf ears. The Bavarian brand has said that the car would simply be too costly to homologate for American roads.

Wagons are a dying breed in the US, as we well know. On top of what would likely be poor sales figures for any new BMW wagon, US crash regulations are significantly different from European ones. That means BMW has to spend a whole lot of money to get any wagon here, not just the M3 Touring. It’ll all have to be homologated, and is basically tantamount to introducing a new car here in the US, even if it does share parts with other BMW models. At the end of the day, BMW has to make money, and a niche wagon won’t do that for them here.
