    I don't buy that. the EPA rated MPG on a 325i is 20mpg on average:
    http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/noframes/7535.shtml

    and that was when the car was brand new. add the extra weight of the cabby, a hundred thousand miles or so and you'll be lucky to make that on average. I get 21-23mpg in my car, but I drive 99% on the freeway (I see it as a sign that my engine runs fine). most people here get less than that, my bet is you're miscalculating or reading off the OBC, which I wouldn't trust..

      I get ~28mpg around town, and I drive like a jackass. on the highway, I get well over 30, closer to 35mpg. *shrug*

        Yeah, I never did calculate it w/ the milage. Just what the OBC says. It just makes me feel better. Haha.

          LOL! I talked to the seller and almost bought the car, just too much work to be done for me. But the price was pretty low I think.

                Diamond Swartz is beautiful, but I too, am biased (325ic).

                As far as mileage, I get about 12-16mpg on my 325ic and between 20-25mpg on my 325ix.
                Current BMW's:
                2004 330Ci

                1986 735i

                Previous BMW's:
                1989 325is RIP
                1989 325iX RIP
