My Ride: 330ci convertible
Fuel Consumption

Hey guys I'm getting 11.7 L/100km for my 330ci convertible manual. Is this normal? What kind of fuel consumption are you guys getting for your e46? Post model(318,320,325,330,m3,e.t.c), whether manual or auto, body type, and fuel consumption. Thanks, this will be a good comparison.

My Ride: 328Ci
328ci manual.

Under/around 9L/100km mixed as a rule, using AC quite a bit and not being afraid to take it out to redline.
11-12 only if I've had an extended spirited drive in there.
