Re: Start/Stop with a Full Glide Mode Will Provide a Significant Improvement in FE

wonder which car will get this feature first as pricing is vital to smash the market and isn't a drag to drive like the mirage.

Re: BMW September 2013 Sales up 8.3% + the 328d First Drive

such a shame considering the price premium, if you really want a cheap bimmer the 320i with a 6spd is probably better for hypermiling capability with the fun of driving a real car once in awhile.

exciting! I love how ECO pro mode lets you COAST when you let off the accel pedal, but is the readout infinite when that happens?
