I have driven more than 7 vehicles in this class or close and none drove better or looked as good, and even came close to the potential mpg this vehicle will get.

You should test drive one more, and put it in sport mode, it drives really good.

It was a 2012 CPO with about 12000 KM so fully broken in AND if indeed I was not in sport mode (hence part of your suggestion for the sluggish performance) then I would have expected to get better than about 20MPG.

Yes it looks good, but currently for me not much more.

I may try to go to another dealer, as I explain before I specifically told the Rep the sluggish performance and asked if there was another setting that could improve this and I got a NO.

Lastly, I don't know about your experiences with Reps, but this was the second visit and clearly got the feeling that I was wasting their precious time selling X6 and other up scale.
