Looks like well be getting an M5 Variant on our shores here pretty soon, obviously BMW will not be outdone by Mercedes' equally cool E55 AMG Sportwagon.

I actually like that a lot more than the sedan. Sleek, understated goodness.

It IS much nicer than the Sedan, thats why i bought one, the sedans rear quater panel is too big, and makes the rear wheel look tiny.

Damn Bangle, Bring back the good old 540i days....

Never cared for wagons, even in the '70's, and that's no exception I'm afraid....

I'll take the sedan, or a 4 by over a wagon..

I like the monster wagon concept like the 300 and Magnum: space racer?

But the BMW is not to my taste :)

I have always had a soft spot for 5 series wagons.....although I personally don't want to own one as my daily driver. (it makes me feel kinda soccer mom)

Also, most wagons I have encountered are never totally tight/quiet/rattleproof ....the rear compartment is just too large (acoustic chamber) structurally its weaker, and its a matter of time before rattles and squeaks start showing up IMHO.

That being said I am currently unable to convice my mom not to plop down $70G's on a Volvo XC70 wagon......(yeah its expensive in Japan).....wagon folks are a different breed maybe.
