That's more or less what I'm getting in my M3 (better highway mileage same city)

I told my wife that I was going to trade her X5 4.8 (which is only 5 months old) for then new X5M - all she wondered was "would it be faster?" She drives fast enough already - i dont think i need that "extra" liability on the road!

I personally think the diesel is the way to go - tons of Tq!

A couple years ago, a friend of mine made a group on Facebook called, "I would rather watch paint dry than another Leafs Game".

The group was created after a long loosing streak.

You guys must do a lot of highway driving at decent speeds.

I live and work downtown, do a lot of downtown driving....im getting 14.7 avg (then again its an E93)... doesnt help that I got an exhaust a month ago, and have been a little rev happy too...

I am able to get 12.8L/100Km. Perhaps the grass has less rolling resistance.

No way man, I rarely get it up that high. I normally shift around 3K and now I'm trying to start shifting from 2.5K to see if it helps but damn it's hard. I do pretty much 100% city driving but this is in Markham so traffic is not as bad as downtown so in theory I should be getting better mileage than you guys!
