Not sure how I missed this post earlier but wanted to comment:

EPA tests cars in "default" mode. Whatever the car turns on in is what is tested. So in the F30's case that would be "Comfort". ECO Pro will yield additional fuel savings.

*This rule is also why BMW can not program cars or allow cars to start in say "sport" mode as it circumvents the default mode as per the EPA requirements, and they are not going to have each mode tested and sell certain cars in certain modes- comfort is the happy medium as far as MPG goes anyways.
