Very interesting... The 535xiT was rated as 18/26 under the old standard, 16/24 under the new. But I've been getting more like 14 with a lead foot and near exclusive use of DS mode.

The sticker lists the EPA mileage at 16/24 for the 535xi wagon. I get less than that, but I probably drive it harder than the EPA.

I have a Thule setup on my 535xiT. It's a mystery why Thule doesn't list this car. It works great, and looks good too IMO. I use the 450 Crossroad mounts, LB50 Load Bars & an 871 fairing.
