    Having owned several Avants and currently a 3 Series Sportswagon, am glad to see attention being paid to a -- god forbid in this country -- wagon. Every time I'm in Europe and see the popularity of wagons, I wonder all over again their lack of appeal here. In the case of the AllRoad, its ground clearance appeals to many of us not for offroading purposes but for dealing with snow conditions. Too bad there's no manual transmission option or I would be driving one now.
