is there a reason the wagon is priced that much higher or is it just because it's relatively rare?

i thought with that amount of mileage a 159, a 3.2 of that year would be around $30k?

i wonder if we will start seeing a number of second production (2008-2009) 3.2s emerging on the market over the next year - this is only the second one i've seen on carsales since august last year!

Mine is one of the last Awd  3.2 Ti's built June 2010 and would have to agree with Colin about low ground clearance and being  careful approaching all speed bumps, dips in gutters as well as gravel type driveways about grounding.According go the owners manual mass us 1610Kg.   not the 1680 in Carsales

wasn't there a batch of automatic Q4's that came in around 2011-2012 as a sort of run out, last hurrah type thing? I was told that. Around the same time the limited edition GT anniversary run was done. I'm with you on the Automatic thing, mine is a manual and I've never owned an automatic anything (car). I've had mine for x 10 years now, bought it as a demo in 2008 and it's been a good car. Just note you'll need to sort the suspension bushes straight away if you want the tyres to last longer then 10,000k's

I've just had B16 Bilsteins fitted to mine and I have no more issues with scraping than I had previously. It's lowered right down all the way round and it has made no difference. It's lower than a Ti. Sure, you have to be careful, but it's no worse strangely enough. Improves the look of the car a great deal. Much improved handling also

Suspension bushes the only degradation issue ever with my first 159.  The plastic cambelt cover on the 1750 disintegrates in your fingers when old and I've gone through more than one cracked coolant header tank.

I suspect my 159ti may be my last manual car.  Ghibli, Giulia, C63 -- no choice.

I want clutch pedal / pull-up handbrake like my 159 (or a Getz!).  The dark side of BMW probably awaits.
