If there’s one type of car that has a rabid following amongst enthusiasts it is wagons with a manual gearbox. The number of new cars available in this form is few. Good used examples are fast disappearing, with the folks who own and love them hanging on to them like the coin of the realm. The 2007 BMW 328xi Touring we featured early this month sold in short order to another enthusiast who contacted us directly seeking more information. Hopefully, we’ll soon have a recap of that story. In the meantime, if you missed the 2007 E91 Touring, here’s one of the last E91 Tourings for sale in Massachusetts sent to us by our reader Adam, painted in a lesser seen shade of Vermilion Red.

I like this E91 Touring. A lot. One of the main reasons is that it is sans iDrive. While the system has gotten better over the years with software upgrades and improved voice commands, I would rather just do without it. The price might seem high, but realistically it’s not far off from what these 5-door 3 series are fetching stateside. Many are hovering in the mid to high $20,000 range. We featured a 2011 328i Touring that had under 50,000 miles back in February that was advertised at just under $33,000. That example wasn’t all-wheel drive, but for some, rear-drive might be preferred when it comes to a car like this. I have a feeling these Tourings will continue to be a cult car for many years to come.
