Out of curiosity, how much time and money would it cost to do a M5 wagon? ie. take a stock M5, preferably damaged in the rear and graft on the rear touring body...
I would love to have one and BMW doesn't import theirs to NA...

just swap the engine, whole lot safer than cutting two cars in half and welding them together
