what's going on with this string of replied to names? Annoying!
anyway, we stopped at the BMW dealer saturday (next building over to the Acura dealer where we drove the RDX), and there was a nice 128 on the apron out front. Medium blue (deep sea blue? something like that) that I had never seen before, with tan interior. Must have been relatively base, since the sticker was only 37k!

"Usually, I'm right around 26-27 MPG with interstate driving. Who needs a 4 cyl? "
People who want to get 36-37 mpg.

One other thing, the MPG computer in the BMW is really accurate. It's usually within + or - .1 MPG of my manual calculations.
ray.....I never drive as if I'm trying to maximize MPG.
Given the MPG I'm getting plus the muscle car acceleration my 3 offers, I'm real happy.

I've actually noticed that too. The MPG on the trip computer is very accurate. On my former TSX, the trip computer was always more generous than my actual mileage (same with my wife's Pilot).

Is on everybody's mind. I'm sure most of you guys are the car gurus of your circle of family, friends, co-workers... like I am. We all drive performance oriented vehicles. People used to say: "Wow, that thing must be a rocket" or "How's it drive?" Now people are so obsessed with gas prices, the first words out of their mouth are: "Is it good on gas?" or "What kind of gas mileage do you get?"

Agree - $4 bux a gallon will do that
#13844 of 16252 Random BMW question

335 m pack for 2011 was that bundled with the performance pack? If not can you add the PP to existing cars thru the dealer / if so cost?

M package is seperate from performance package. One does not include the other. Performance Package is only available via the dealer. But, I've never asked any independent shop if they could do it.
