Which included about 10% stop n go city driving.

For reference, those are the kind of mpgs you'd see out of a dedicated econo-box like the Chevy Cruze eco.
So getting that in a car that can hold its own against mustangs and 350zs and previous generation M3s is exceptional.
That is precisely why I bought the car. Best of both worlds plus it handles too. What more could you want?
Quaife LSD w/VAC finned diff cover, M3 Rear SF Bushings, M3 sways & M3 OEM Susp Front/Rear Component Kits (w/o strut brace), GC Caster/Camber Plates, Íhlins R&T coilovers, Goodrich SS brake lines, non-staggered APEX ARC-8 18" wheels with Michelin PSS.
