I am driving an X1. I have been wanting a 3 series wagon for ever, but the current pricing favors X1 by a large margin. It also has the option of RWD, which F31 doesn't have anymore.

Configured similarly an X1 xDrive 28i costs about 9k less than F31. The only trade off is lower quality interior, the chassis is allegedly superior to F31 and space is competitive (shorter, narrower but taller).
