2 is not bad, but my E70s are 3 mph off and my M3 is almost 4. I would rather they just be accurate like my old GMC envoy which was less than 1.

In my experience those saying to slow down to get the stated mpg are completely correct, especially with something as big as an X5. I doubt the F15 is as bad as the E70, but wind resistance and...

Not a lot of responses. Am I in the minority and most folks like the brown? or maybe just no one cares much.

Brown lower dash..... Why?

Why does BMW insist on making the lower dash brown with certain leather colors such as mocha. They did the same thing with the E70. I really wish there was an option for black.
