BMW 2002 Touring

In excellent original condition. Seen today in Golden Gate Park.

The BMW 2002 two door model is a common sight in California. But the very pretty Touring is rare. They weren't sold here.

The Touring was probably not imported because Americans associate hatchback cars with economy and cheapness. Unfortunately this is still the perception today, and most hatch versions of European cars are not imported if that car is available with a boot instead. That's a pity. We miss out on a lot of good cars.
