328i - picked up Nov '12. 900miles.
Used kick-down and hit the red line after about 300miles. I'm not one who subscribes to 'running in' the engine. I appreciate the car as whole should be nursed for a few hundred miles but after that, time to enjoy when the need arises. Other than that I try to get the most i can out of a tank of fuel.
Re fuel economy - very disappointed. Am only getting 30mgp (UK) combined -advertised is 44.8mgp. I didn't even get over 40mgp on a 100mile journey (when extra urban is quoted as 54.3). Hope this improves - anyone know how many miles before it does?!
Typically use Eco-pro 60% of time, 20% comfort and 20% sport/+.
