Why would anyone want one ? A 5 series Touring a/k/a station wagon has less trunk space than the sedan. It doesn't seat any more passengers . It doesn't look as good either. Just what would the avantage to a Touring be over the sedan ?Originally posted by KnightRider:
i think it will, i saw spy pics of an M5 touring with german numberplates, unless they were computer generated...i cant see why they wouldnt launch a touring version
Yes but that includes the space all the way up to the headliner. If you packed the back that high you would have NO rear visibility. If you pack the back only as high as the rear seat back the Touring has far less space that the saloon truck. Plus, the saloon truck gives you more security as your load is out-of-sight !Originally posted by jokarak:
Parkafe: Hmmm...according to Edmunds.com, the 540 station wagon has a trunk capacity of 32.1 cu. ft, while the sedan has 11.1 cu. ft.
I was very tempted to get a 540 station wagon for my wife...but she vetoed it. It think the car looks good and has lots of versatility.

I think that there were 891 Touring M5s built. If that is 50% of the m5 contingent, I really own a rare car then ;-)
Are you sure of this? GeorgeK
