More from the school of hard knocks. My 328 sportwagon got 22.6 mpg during the first 2,500 miles, and about 25.0 the next 23,000 with no change in city/highway percentages. I did see a posting on...

s28i MPG after break in (>2,500 mi)

Anybody have mpg figures on the X1 s28i after 2,500 miles? I've read some threads on this forum but IMO I don't expect the fuel economy to match the EPA numbers until the car is broken in. Thanks.

FWIW I never received my plates and had to go through the DMV and order new ones. I did it over the phone and they were pretty nice despite the frosty reputation.

My battery has died twice, but it was my "bad" (remember to shut the doors). Throw it on a battery charger and check a few days later with a multimeter and I was good to go.

Not many problems with a white 328i station wagon; somehow it seems less awe-inspiring than other BMWs but it fits perfectly with my weekend-warrior lifestyle.

Funny thing, the Cadillac BTS wagon wasn't a very good seller in Europe even though it looks exactly like my 328i. I would love a few "3 killer alternatives" just to keep the HPFP idiots in check:

The 2010 Audi A3 at 45 mpg+, 140 hp, and 236 ft. lb. (more than the 328) SHOULD work for a lot of people in the US, but probably won't sell well for reasons I'll never understand:
