2013 X3 28i -- Anyone gotten mileage yet?

There should be a few 28i's out there by now and I was wondering if anyone has run one enough to get a feel for the mileage and power from the 4 cyl turbo? I know, it is probably too soon to get a really accurate number since they can't be broken in yet, but one should get an idea of how they are running. Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately after debating for over 6 months, even when I pointed out we will qualify for the $1,000 Team USA and $500 BMWCCA rebates soon, the wife still decided on the 2012 GLK350 AWD. We both agreed the X3 was more fun to drive, but the GLK is not that bad. It comes down to the lease payment, we are talking $200/mo. difference for similarly listed and equal lease terms/drive offs. That was just too much.

We picked up our '13 Friday (5/4), and are getting (reported on dash) 26-29 mpg in mixed driving, using Comfort and Eco Pro modes. We are pleased by this performance, and love the fit, finish and performance of this 28i X3.

Congrats on your ride. On your 28i, did your vehicle came with the Black high Gloss Instrument panel, I have seen pictures of 2013 28i and did not seen it on there. Although it is listed as standard equipment as the 35i.

Mein Auto: Getting X3 for wifey
Picked out our on April 21. Currently it has 903 miles on it. We're still in official break-in period so I haven't pushed it super hard, but generally speaking I have heavy feet. So in Vehicle info average for all 903 miles are 24 mpg. For the last trip from work my wife had 25.4 mpg in mixed driving. She uses comfort setting exclusively.

Just for comparison, we picked up our '12 35i M Sport on 2/3/12 and we're currently just shy of 700 miles... The on board reading is just about 19mpg, mixed driving... She drives it easy, I like to jump on it a little bit here and there...

I would say overall that 25+mpg in mixed driving is a great result for you I4 turbo owners! Enjoy!

I guess I need to take it easy...only getting 20.4 mpg or so in 900 miles thus far. Mostly city type driving with the AC on continuously though. It's just so much FUN to be a little lead footed in this car.

Mein Auto: X3
I just bought a 2012 X3 2.5... I'm not sure if I'm reading the mileage on-board info correctly. It's currently at about 17.5 mpg. I have about 500 miles on it. I do mostly city driving...

Not sure if I should reset the "trip computer" or something to get a more accurate reading...

RayVanUSA - wow, that's incredible mileage congrats.

City driving

650 Miles, all city driving basically reset indicator each fill up, got 17.8 last fill up. I am kinda disappointed thus far. Power is no problem however.

Realize, this was all highway miles. Set the cruise control and go for it. One stop for fuel.

A 35i! Well, that is great -- I wonder how the new 28i turbo will do, actually that is what I was trying to find out with the post.

I don't believe the 2013 28i is turbocharged. Same engine, no turbo.
Didn't mean to highjack your thread. Just providing info.

The BMW N20 engine is a turbocharged straight-4 engine. The engine is very different and the first time to be introduced to the X3 line for 2013. The 35i remains unchanged this year.

Yep, it's been quite the topic.

I will surely miss the roar of an I6, but have to move on at some time. The reviews on the N20 have been really good and the worst complaint is that it sounds like a 4 cylinder engine at idle (and it does).

I should have mine this week!
