Sounds too high for that mileage and year. Of course if it is in excellent condition it may be worth a premium.

To be accurate my "city" driving is really mostly suburban and doesn't include a lot of stop and go or sitting in traffic. So I would bet I'd get around 18-19mpg in true city driving.

Yeah, something is wrong. My E90 325i gets around 21-22 mpg city and 28-29 mpg highway. And I drive fairly aggressively.

I suspect that your wife's foot slipped off of the clutch pedal and the car was in fast idle after start up, thus providing enough engine rpm to move the car forward enough to cause the incident.

Oooo! I love to play "Guess That Part!"

Voted again.

I noticed your photo was on the bottom. I hope that isn't indicative of your position in the voting. Your photo was higher on the page yesterday.

You had 73 votes when I voted.

He's lucky I wasn't the judge. Seems to me that a case of $200,000 insurance fraud deserves a bit more than probation.

Not to mention the crime of destroying a beautiful Ferrari.
