There is also no M3 Touring to bring over. And even if there were, like the C63 Estate and RS4 Avant, given the tiny volume, there would not be enough margin to make a business case. You need sizable margins ($100k+ transaction prices) to make the numbers work on these cars.
Yes, I know this, which is why I stated BMW won’t ever bring/make a wagon M variant, despite having the resources and money to do so. But then again, they make the X6 M for some ungodly reason, Audi will likely do special-order only, I don’t see why BMW couldn’t do something similar to save some money
