2012 F10 528xi road trip impressions
Just drove my 528 xi from Washington to California for Xmas. This is a great car for a road trip. I have also owned an E 60 535i and an E60 528xi and this is hands down a better car for a long road trip. It is quieter, smoother and in general a more comfortable car. I do miss the adjustable side bolsters which are no longer available. Active cruise control makes 8 hour drives a breeze. Once you learn to trust it, it is outstanding, even in heavy traffic. Mileage with the 4 banger is phenomenal for a large car with a heavy load of luggage and presents. The first 2 days averaged 31. 8 mpg. Mileage fell off with mountain driving and Bay Area rush hour traffic. Overall average was 30.5 mpg. BMW Navigation is a joke! It gave us several illogical routings on the trip, we know the route, but still very poor! The free Waze iPhone app is far superior to the BMW crap.
