I really understand what you mean. However in tax infested europe bmw's are known for being fuel efficient while being powerful driving machines (compared to the competitors). a 2007 318d with 155hp (chip) can constantly do 150km/h while only consuming 5l/100km in right conditions. Something most people are amazed about when i take them for a ride
