My iDrive is reading 6.8 MPG right now and I'm fine with that.
I wonder why they even bothered with stop/start. It would have been nice if that would have gotten the M3 out of gas guzzler territory.

But...anyone buying an M3 should not be surprised about the poor fuel economy. But 6.8 MPG? You're an ozone hater!
