I had a thread on this several years ago and using the vehicles info inflates your speed and mileage (and thus your MPG). Iirc, the speed (and mileage) is 7%-8% higher than reality. Some posted that this is because of a German law and known issue.

Also sucks for leasing - as your miles per month (based on 1k per month) get shorted by 70-80 miles per month.

Personally surprised this has not been the subject of a class action suit.
Sounds like you simply have a problem with your particular car.

I think the NBT iDrive system came out with the 2013 model. I'm not sure if the 2012 model uses CIC or NBT but that's a major difference imo.

I'm pretty sure the AH3 was discontinued after 2013 but I could be wrong.

Verified with Dealers and BMW....as well as countless others aware of it on this board


But don't take my word for it. Simply search for the earlier thread or have a GPS measure your speed while you drive and look at your speedometer

Ok yet me everyone else I've see on this board and Fuelly's get similar mileage. Even if the battery was removed, you'd get better than 20mpg
