MPG: 2009 v. 2008...

I was looking at a dealer's website and notice these numbers:

2009 M3 Coupe:
City MPG:
17
Hwy MPG:
28
http://www.bmwpeabody.com/new-invent...349665efa8c998

2008 M3 Coupe:
City MPG:
14
Hwy MPG:
20
http://www.bmwpeabody.com/new-invent...seHistory=true

Really....? I guess if this matters to you, you'd better wait for the 09. Even if paying a little more over 48 months, I wonder if you eventually break even.

This is how it starts. A month from now, and forever more, we're going to read on this or some other forum that some guy read somewhere that the 09's have less power because of different emission restrictions.
