You know what? That updated EPA numbers make it more realistic. That is exactly what we're getting in our X5 when driving normally.

I also didn't opt for the adaptive drive on the x5 since my wife will be the primary driver of the car and she wont ever use that feature driving on the streets. As for me, I have my M :D
