Note if you drive your 435i aggressively in the city, it certainly won't get the same observed MPG as the 428i.

If you want to see crazy good mileage, take a look at some of Audi's 4.0T offerings, and their insane EPA mileage.

It just means that automakers are starting to make engines that are virtually the same efficiency level for a given HP output. But EPA testing cycles do not force your car to produce some fixed percentage of its maximum power. Thus, if you drive your 435i really really gently all the time, sure, you can get similar-to-428i mileage. but then why'd you buy a 435i in the first place?

Re: Anyone notice that the 428i only gets 1 mpg better in the city compared to the 43

If you can discipline yourself to drive a 435 gently 90% of the time, you won't stress about the lousy mileage that you're getting the 10% of the time that you are driving it like you stole it!
