You probably already know you can give steering wheel a quick tug left or right to restart if you forget to turn ASS off. Still a pain but it's quick.

I think it takes your most recent average after a reset, times full tank gallons. So refill after averaging 21 mpg x 17.7 would show around 360 miles to empty. Do it after averaging around 26 and...

Wow. That is incredible. I get 8 mpg on the track with a V8 M5. I wonder why such big differences in X3 mileage? An X5M gets 12 mpg. 23-25 is reasonable but that city mileage is horrible.

Matty, I have a 2013 M Sport. I have never once thought it was too stiff. I don't have adaptive dampers. It drives like a BMW, no other way to describe it.

Firm is my lowered e39 M5.
