X3 35i M Sport fuel economy

I'm considering an X3 35i M Sport for my daily driver. My Edge Sport is roomy for the bird dogs, but is thirsty, barely cracking 20 mpg@ a constant 70. My E63 Wagon was swift, comfortable, flew under the radar, but REALlY thirsty (it made my Ford GT look economical). The X3 35i with M Sport seems like an ideal compromise. My question is, what kind of mileage can one expect @ highway speeds with the cruise on? My '06 M3 competition was actually pretty economical if I kept from burying the tach (frequently 25-27mpg@70-75 mph), so I was wondering what owners of X3s with the bigger 6 could expect?
Thanks in advance.
