An imperial gallon is about 1.2 U.S. gallons so you need to convert it.

36 mpg (imp) works out to be about 30 mpg (U.S.)

30 mpg is very much in line with what the 640i coupe gets. So the good news is true.

I wouldn't worry about bugs. The 6GC is an F10 variant. There's nothing in that car that hasn't already been tested for a couple of years in the F10.

I believe 640i GC will priced less than its 2 doors counterparts. Most definitely less than 740i.

More smoke and mirrors, and a generous dose of deception, using imperial gallons as the measure of gas mileage. Another piece of crap interior. Wood has been and is the measure of luxury car interiors not brushed aluminum. How about giving the consumer a little more bang for the buck -- a stinking V-8 with twin turbos ? This is a system that BMW hasn't been able to make work for years. I wish anyone who buys it good luck. BMW is notorious for not honoring warranty claims through their stealerships, just take a look at the websites. This dog won't hunt.

MMMmmmm, love it. Has hints of Aston Martin in the front and 3/4 side views... any hope of a hydraulic steering option?? I'd be happy to give up 3 mpg and pay a bit more.
