Wow. Over the last week I barely got 15 in my 50 M sport. Traffic in DC was a mess, leading to some long commutes...maybe I should have gotten the M after all. :dunno:

It's a good looking car. I test drove at Sterling (it is about 8 miles from my house, vs. like 30 to Passport). I found them to be knowledgeable and professional...and $2k more expensive.
