ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Even as cars seem to get more homogeneous -- fewer options, colors and trim levels for customization potential -- a handful of automakers offer the chance to build something that will really stand out. When it comes to the Porsche crowd, these features are as mundane (and yet thoroughly obsessed over) as deviated stitching. Modern muscle car fans want just the right package for their Dodge Challenger Scat Pack (which they will then park in a garage and never drive).

And then there's this sensible 2019 BMW 330i xDrive wagon offered by Winslow BMW in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It's just like every other 330i -- spacious, feature-laden and good for nearly 250 horsepower -- except that it's painted in Dakar Yellow, an extra-cost shade normally reserved for BMW's M cars. Hang onto this one long enough and it's all-but-guaranteed to be the talk of the internet when it comes time to sell it.

With a list price of $63,245, it's also one expensive 330i xDrive wagon, though it is well-equipped with options such as navigation, heated seats, parking sensors and surround-view cameras. Appropriately, it wears the M Sport Line styling package with its M3-inspired up-sized wheels, meatier bumpers and rocker panel covers. Its black interior features leather upholstery rather than the Sensa-Tec vinyl fitted to so many 3-Series cars, and its 3-spoke M steering wheel is one of the best in the business. It's hard to imagine that the person who placed this order didn't have a smile on his or her face after clicking send.

330i interior

Google "BMW Dakar Yellow" and dozens of well-documented examples including a few generations of 3-Series wagons swathed in the bright shade pop up on enthusiast blogs. BMW has offered a version of the shade since it was used as the hero color -- the shade used in early marketing material -- for the E36 M3 that arrived in 1995.

However, the Dakar Yellow paint job isn't the only reason this particular wagon is bound to never live a life of obscurity. BMW has vetoed plans to bring the next-generation 3-Series wagon to the U.S. as it focuses instead on its core 3-Series sedan and its X3 crossover instead.

So, pragmatic attention seekers eager for a do-it-all wagon that won't get lost in a parking lot, your wagon is here. If this one's a little too bright for your tastes, you can still find your dream 3-Series wagon on Autotrader. Find a BMW 330i Wagon for sale
