As I suspected, good comparison between the two.

I'd have to admit that the Audi looks much sexier.

My actual MPG based on manual calculations (Fuelly.com) are always about 1.0mpg better than what the OBC shows. I think this has been pretty consistent across the 335D group on this site.

I'm reaching 74k so may give it a look...
