Think it averages about 34mpg, which isn't bad, doesnt go badly, but FWD and an auto box, so not exactly rapid off the line. Its wafts up to motorway speeds relatively swiftly but doesnt pin you to the seat like an RS6.
Its predecessor was a beemer 330d, brilliant car, you get the performance (new one is sub 7secs to 60, and top end of 155mph) and you get 42mpg, we did see 45mpg a few times. Disadvantage is everyone thinks your a t*** in a silver bm!
