You really don't buy an "M" Car for it's fuel efficency though, do you?!
How did you "average" that good of mileage, simply amazing. You really think the E92 M3 will get "much better than it's projected MPG." Are you thinking it will get maybe 35 mpg highway since BMW has stated the E92 M3 is 8% more efficient than the E46 M3. Have you read the first tests where drivers averaged 11 mpg, albeit with extremely hard driving conditions. Boy do I hope you are right.
