Driving around Perth in peak hour has become such a pain that I drive the Suzi during the work week with it's CVT box and leave the M3 for weekends and M mode. I don't know if anyone agrees but if I drive like I'm trying to save fuel my consumption actually increases whereas driving in M mode (basically all settings max'd out) I actually get slightly better consumption figures!
My wife's X5 40d freaks me out...... heavy city peak hour driving and she gets 9-10l/100km with heaps of torque and approx 800+ km per tank. I'd go for an F10 535d in a heartbeat if they weren't so ridiculously overpriced.
