Luck of the draw that EPA did not get around to validate the 528i numbers? Although it may not be just luck that EPA decided to validate the 328i numbers since the 36 mpg number was significantly ahead of the rest of the pack. Most people will say the EPA numbers matter, whether you agree with the numbers or not.
