Probably in Comfort mode about 70% of the time, Sport/Sport+ 20% and Eco-yawn about 10%. ASS is on most of the time as I keep forgetting to switch it off.

Did a long run from Brighton to Richmond (North Yorks) about 300m up the M23/M25/M11/A1 pretty much 70mph the whole way and got a fraction over 50mpg. Was well chuffed with that.
Wow, that is pretty damn good.

This doesn't make it any easier for me, I am so worried that I will regret not having another manual gearbox. A 328i manual would probably be just the ticket.
