It is a very rare breed. I drove out to Pittsburgh this past weekend and on my drive home I did 95 MPH pretty much the whole way just using cruise, no slow uphill fast downhill or anything. Just 95 on the hills. My average speed was 83mph and my mileage was 32 mpg. I couldn't ask for better, unless i slowed down of course. This also included a few runs to the 100's and a run to 145 mph as well. I love the car and how it just hums along w/o any care in the world.
I used to be embarrassed by the way the diesel sounded. But after living with the car for a couple thousand miles, I am actually proud of how it sounds! Its very different. Unlike a gas engine, the diesel doesn't even like to be revved in neutral at an intersection to attact attention. The car really does grow on you. I drove a 6M 2008 M3 the other night. After jumping back in the diesel, it definitely still feels amazing.
