    Dear Bimmerfesters, I bought my 535iX (build year 10/2011) about 3 or 4 months ago with 47k kilometers on the odo (from a BMW dealer) and have been driving around for about 6-7k kilometers. What I've noticed is that I have a very abnormal gas/mileage. My car's boardcomputer tells me its using...
