I would imagine most F30 335i owners didn't chose an M3 because its not out yet in the updated body style and because its not easy to DD an M3.
Yea, dont know where you heard that from. Maybe an E46 or previous generation, but not the E9X. Like butter, baby.

Im currently at 18mpg on winter blend even. Just sayin...
I drove the current version M3...no way I could've manage that DD.
I drive 120 miles a day, minimum, so for me, not doable.
If I had a 35mile DD, M3 was more
Manageable.

Highway MPG is where I was sold with the F30 335i...on winter blend with knobby winter tires, 27mpg is amazingly cost effective for me. I've put 4,000 miles on the car and I bought it in mid-Oct!

Lets see post tune, but I usually score better mpg because the AF ratios are nicely leaned out...
