Petition to BMW Begs for M3 Wagon in USA

Petition wants BMW to bring M3 Touring to USA because who doesn't want a 500 hp wagon?

  • More than 2,000 signators want M3 Wagon

  • But good luck changing BMW’s mind with digital requests


Some Americans (and a few Canadians) are really not happy that BMW isn’t planning to bring the first M3 wagon to our shores. Forget that nobody buys wagons, and that the regular 3 Series Touring isn’t offered here, and that emissions certifying and crash testing a car is expensive, people want their wagons. So now there’s a petition asking BMW to change their minds and Make America Touring Again.

The petition, started by Kian A three days. and posted to Change.org (via BMW Blog), was just crossing 2,000 signatures when we first saw it, though that number is climbing quickly. The petition reads as follows:

“Dear BMW,

Please embrace Audi’s decision to bring their RS6 Avant to the US Market and do the same with your upcoming G81 M3 Touring. Some individuals have already reached out to local dealers, but this should collectively represent the level of excitement and interest for your first-ever M3 Touring. If this ends up reaching anyone at BMW, a 6MT option would be legendary, to say the least, and you know we Americans love our M cars with three pedals. Remember when you gave us three pedals for the V10 powering the E60 M5? That was brave of you, and the few produced are real treasures today. Regardless of transmission, there is a good chunk of us who don’t necessarily want an SUV and find a wagon (let alone an M3 wagon) way more appealing.”

Because BMW already offers an X3 M or an X4 M, but there are still a few buyers who say that they would buy a wagon and not a crossover.

What do we think? BMW’s not likely to respond to this, as their executives enjoy the positive cash flow of the company’s current lineup. A better option than a petition would be to head down to your BMW dealer and offer a deposit because if enough people do that, things are more likely to change. Or lobby your legislators for an end to the 25-year import rule or a start to allowing EU-certified vehicles on the road here. Beyond that, sign away, but we don’t think it’ll get you closer to that M3 wagon.
