Hi All,

Been using this website for detailed research over the last few months, amazing what info you can find on the tinterweb these days.

Finally decided to purchased a 2005 Black 330i SE Auto - hopefully picking it up next week.... excited !

It goes like brown stuff off a shovel

Hi guys,I'm new around here and heard about the site mainly due to the "cracked" wheel episode of Watchdog.

We still have the E93 but,have already changed the E61 for something a little different.

I get about 34mpg, although you're probably weighed down by your bigger rear end

Welcome Chris.

I used to get around 34mpg same as Ed in my E92 335d so not sure what's happening with yours. Sure the back isn't full of concrete blocks lol. Have you tried resetting the OBC to see if the mpg alters at all? Without assuming you don't already know this, but bigger diesels show more of their true economy 'status' on longer runs.
