Mein Auto: 2011 X3 35i
I have an '11 35i, with the '11 Sport package (transmission, seats, etc.) and DHP, but not the M-sport cosmetic components. When doing all highway driving, below 65MPH, I've gotten as high as 29 mpg. Above 70-75MPH the mileage falls back down around 25 mpg. Driving in Sport Mode hurts mileage (8th gear is locked out unless you manually shift to it, just a flick of the paddles or shifter), and using Cruise Control helps mileage. Properly inflated tires will also help mileage.
