I'm hoping to be able to get a 330D but may have to roll for the 320D if the economy is bad. I'm hoping for 50mpg from the 330 - hopelessly optimistic you think?
I would think driving on longish distances on the motorway, consistently and smoothly, at 60mph, would be pretty much the sweet spot for economy; so I don't think you'll have much trouble achieving 50mpg in these conditions; though I can't say for sure as my car isn't quite here yet, but my gut feeling is this should be very achievable...
