Agree completely with your assessment of the steering, suspension, and exhaust. It’s too bad the drive modes can’t adjust the steering like my M5. I think you may have miscalculated your MPG though.

Am I the only one that thinks the seats aren't *that* comfortable? In particular, I wish they had leg support extensions. My Porsche Macan Turbo & BMX X3 M40i both have it (though the BMW's is manually actuated.)



Also 22mpg is insane, bordering on impossible.

22 is excellent, my guess, Eco mode, tires inflated to max, level highway, cruise on.....

OK - I dug up my notes and re-calculated the MPG. I did make a mistake. I actually got 20 MPG. Something got lost when I converted it from L per 100KM.

Keep in mind the roads were flat and I drove ultra conservative. At the end of the day I don't really care about the mileage and will certainly consistently get worse than that.

Under perfect conditions that seems possible. e.g. Flat roads, no AC, light load, keeping it under 70mph and maybe even running in eco mode (if that really helps).

Even 20 is impressive if at 70 mph average. I got mid 19 only once when driving in the keys at a constant 45-50. Faster, it drops depending on how fast and how hard on the petal.. It's not easy to stay below 50 in mt TH..

Eco mode. I had my wife read the online manual while we were on the trip to see what eco mode does. The description is vague. In my other ride, eco switches V8 to V4 mode (which I hate because I can feel it switch modes) . Luckily I can disable it.

There’s other discussions about Eco mode but it shifts sooner as well as a power reduction. I use it for my weekday commute to keep me from getting arrested.

I think I may have pressed the Eco mode button once, just to see if the button worked . I didn't notice any immediate difference for the ~2 minutes I had it on. I guess it's an interesting gimmick, but it's not what I bought this thing for. I'd much rather see FCA turn the ECO button into a "press to pass" button.
