I was thinking M4 Cab, Alfa Giulia Quad or C63 - but the running costs seem much higher in the latter two.
They're entirely dependent on how you drive it. Plenty only have them as a weekend use type of car in which case they may average in the teens, whereas I use mine for everyday commuting where I'm stuck going whatever speed everyone else is, which no doubt helps mine look reasonable.
Same with the tyres. I'm not someone sliding it round roundabouts or doing launch starts, so i get reasonable tyre wear. It's all relative though... I think it's reasonable, yet our 330e is on 68k miles with the original front tyres, and the rears lasted 55k. It also costs half the pence per mile in petrol that the M4 does, so in that light perhaps not so reasonable.
