I have never acheived better than 32 and this is calculated on full tank to full tank not using OBC to calculate.
I have never acheived anywhere near the BMW figures. This is on a pre ED car. i do not know if the efficent dynamics are that much better in real life.
thanks for that!

So 6mpg worse than my 320i.....

They make a lovely noise though, don't they??!!!
