I didn't come up with numbers. They have been posted in the technical specifications document noted above in the notes. I would believe that with a new engine and transmission that you would get better fuel economy.

They are the same. These 2010 numbers came from the Canadian BMW site. I don't have direct European numbers because the 30d and 40d engine output is different. The Canadian output is the same.

I would be happy to stick to US numbers but as of this writing, I haven't found any that could be used in direct comparison for 2011. These do directly convert but I'm a little stunned as to why the EPA numbers and the converted numbers don't line up a little more closely. It must be the way the testing is done. These do look like optimistic numbers where the EPA are a little on the low side.

Will do.
