    RE: 530xi - real life MPGi.....

    I am looking to buy a 2006 530xi wagon with manual transmission. What kind of MPG one can expect?

    I know that manual cars are rare but I would be interested to hear what owners of cars with auto transmissions are observing.....

    So what is your question... Do you want to know what mileage a manual gets or what an automatic gets?

    I have an '07 530xi sedan with MT and get about 23 mpg average. MTs get better mileage as a rule. I believe the xi will probably cost you another mile per gallon than an i model.

    I just bought a 2006 530 Xi wagon with the automated manual trans. I have only driven it locally so far, and the computer says 24.7 mpg. I'm really surprised - but happy.
