I picked up my 2015 3.5 X-1 in Europe in April. All 2015's are still available for euro delivery. When they switch to the Fwd platform (2016), they will be made outside of Leipsig.

I picked my 3.5 up in Munich and got an average 0f 19.5MPG in the 800 miles I did in Europe. Honestly, I did not buy the 3.5 to be that concerned with gas mileage. If I wanted excellent mileage, I...
