Going on that I'd say that Megas guess of mid to late 20s for the 135i is probably about right. Not sure about what it might do on a length of the country type motorway cruse. Couldn't see it being anymore economical than the 125i otherwise what's the point of the 125i?
A bigger engine can work less hard at speed, so due to better gearing can be more econimcal.

This reviewed got 49 mpg out of a F30 335i!

Stop it!

Any how, i have fallen out with Dealer today. They made a mistake on the price, and forgot to add in the heated seats. Asked me to pay, i said no - they said there is no money left in the deal. That was a few hours ago....
