Mein Auto: 2009 335d
Parker CO to Thousand Oaks CA 1100 miles in 13.5 hours

Due to some urgent business at home we decided to drive straight home. My 335d never missed a beat....from 32 degrees and 11,000+ feet in the Rockies, to 90's in the desert. 1100 miles in 13 1/2 hours is the most miles in the least time Ive ever done, but the d with its amazing long distance high speed capabilities made it easy. I really do think that the harder you work these cars, the more they like it. MPG ranged from a low of 31.2 to a high of 35.7.

Wow, average of 81 mph with I'm guessing 2 fuel stops. I'm guessing you were almost triple digits for portions of the trek back home for that average to work out. Hope everything is okay at home.

Indeed I was and you are right about two fuel stops. The car on cruise at 100 is so solid and comfortable its just amazing. Our Beltronics V10 radar detector did its job perfectly. None of the highway patrols in the five states we went through even came close to locking on to me before I knew they were there and had reset the cruise to whatever the posted limit was.

Be careful.... they are on the look for you now ... haha.... just.. kidding...

I see my speedometer locked up at 100 on the 405 sometimes too.... maybe it is malfunction at the time....
