What other "real word" mpg numbers are folks getting, and does it improve after the break-in service? The car is rated for 17/22 and some folks have reported 28 on the freeway. But 12.3mpg of non-spirited driving seems really low.
Trying to do my ED in April...
Better than my M3. lol. I don't really think of gas mileage on a high dollar car but I hate refueling frequently. The new M5 is very reasonable. I get about 250 miles out of a tank or so. I haven't really paid attention.
