Agree, and add some motors have no chance in the real world, the setup is just wrong for average driving conditions and speeds. For me a 318d auto fits that group where mpg shortfall will be a bigger percentage than say something like a 325d auto, driven in a similar manner, and at the same cruising speeds.
