Seriously, I owned 2 E60 M5's and now own a E63 M6. I have never once in gone above 19MPG and even that is very rare. Unless he is running on half his cylinders I dont think how thats possible. Heck even back in my E46 M3 days I never saw anything more then 21MPG. Other then that, wonderful cars in every way.

On 42lb green top injectors? With a Fast 90, AFRs and a decent cam, ~540whp is doable.

These things were $110K+ brand new in 2006 and they are still holding their value at around $50K...

Cant comment on the M5 or 6.


However i can say, if you are on the highway (not flooring it) and getting below 21 you are doing something terribly wrong.


Cruise control @ 3k RPM in 6th gear i can avg 24-27 mpg.
