Around 25 mpg combined I think lol............mind you that torque would pull side of a house down! Is the mpg too bad considering it weighs OVER 2.5 tonnes.
True all have their merits, but for me the 40d engine has the edge in terms of power / economy balance. especially when they put in the 8speed box as one of the things i hated about the 335D was the gearbox.

Saying that with the roads as they are, the power is pretty redundant most of the time and the RRS would be better for cruising about it in Apparently the ladies prefer it
