Those are REAL world figures, not the brochure and not from someone cruising up and down the m-ways...
Its a manual Chris and i appreciate that there is a big difference between what BMW say and real life......

But when you compare this against 330D's, A4 TDI's etc............it fails badly.

BTW......we once did a pretty big stretch of M'way driving with the car and STRUGGLED to get near 40mpg even when driving like a greenpeace member.
