But is that representative? We must use the benchmark figures, even if we knock off a percentage, like we'd experience in our own driving.

I drive a 2006 330d auto touring and that has returned 37mpg long term (over 50k miles). I drove the 328i as I'd drive my car, and it returned 42.4mpg OBC over a 90 mile test drive, so have hopes to get over 40mpg in a 328i touring.

Certainly don't buy on fuel costs alone, particularly if you drive low miles.
