535GT At Dealer's

I was somewhat surprised to see a fairly well equipped 535 GT in dealers storage area this AM. Thought they would be along later. Stickered for a little under $62K. Was really surprised to see EPA setimate of 28 mpg for highway. Isn't it about 2 1/2 tons in weight?

The F10 is being tested right now for the US mileage ratings.

F10 epa 20-29mpg

F10 already announces mileage at 20 city 29 highway. This is a car with a cd=.29 and weights 3880. The F07 GT weights 4586 has a cd=.31 and the sticker I saw today said 19 city 28 highway. This new engine must be pretty efficient to get those numbers!

Picking up my 535i GT via ED in Munich next Wednesday...

...and I will let you know the highway mileage later on in the trip. Our 3 week trip will be about 1700 miles thru southern Germany, Austria, and parts of Italy. Can't wait - and Rolph picks us up!

Cheers,
nekountze

Saw one today, looks like a baby X6. Actually better looking in person than photos.

I bet they sell like hot cakes and convert wagon owners.

I actually saw a lot of GTs in Germany. Many more than I see here, percentage wise. I still can't come to grips with the styling.
