Just done a long drive from santander to Alicante in 435i convertible really impressed:smile2:
With a few detours just over 600 miles , not hanging about managed about 75mph most of the time and still getting just over 37 mpg
May take it easier on way back next week and see if I can get even better mpg
Worst part about doing speeds is trying to get flies off front of car...... Not looking good at present:frown:, where's a good hand car wash when you need it!!!

Awesome, that's a great way to break in the engine :D

Did you keep track of gas mileage through out the trip or is that something you don't even think of? ;)

On leaving just set everything to zero and was pleasantly surprised with the figures after 600 miles
Will be off back in about a week on a different route more A roads than dual carriage ways so wait to see what comes of that

In Spain at present it's hard enough understanding the parking meters, what chance would I stand of asking someone for a bra for my car😃
Just kidding good idea !!!!!!

back now!!! took it easier on way but only managed to get 38mpg used a lot of smaller roads and saw a lot of rural Spain & took a lot longer
really pleased though with mpg and performance also with that roof down the sound of that straight 6 is worth the purchase price alone......

Now that is awesome, good to see that you really enjoy your rides and make the best of them and don't just have them be parking spot queens.
