Good to know. I was surprised to see such a huge falloff in ER after such a short amount of time

My concern is the tire size. It is 225 40 R19 with run flats. My concern is the harshness of the ride. I can't find a vehicle with 18s on them. Based on what I've heard it offers a much more smoother ride.


Am I overthinking this? Will the 19s be too rough? I live in Houston where the roads are hit or miss....
Cant say for RFT. But I have 19s with adapative and all that with Go flats. The ride was very good and compliant in comfort.

Not sure your post belongs in this thread, but answering anyway; I have the 19s with runflats - the ride is somewhere between ''firm' and 'too firm'. Firm on normal flat Dutch roads, and too firm over speedbumps and the like.

On a scale of 1 - 10:

Overthinking. I've driven the 330i plenty of times with the same set up you mention and it was fine. Get the adaptive suspension if your bias is towards comfort.

And this is coming from somebody who lives in a city where winters suck and roads get bumpy and potholes.

You don't think 19s plus runflats is too firm? I'm borderline on trading these in for something a little softer; getting fed up with 10km/h over speedbumps...

Could be the speedbumps of course; they're evil round here.

4000 miles on it, am getting an absurd 24mpg, with 75% city driving. It is winter so a lot of put-putting, but still simply outstanding. I used to get roughly the same mileage, about 330miles a tank with my C43, but was putting intwo gallons more!

M340i MPG

Recently I had to do 872 miles in one day (long story). Mainly motorway driving of course - but Iím pretty impressed with the economy on a long run. Got it over 40MPG at one point... but this was the average for the day.

Thatís 32MPG for those in the US....

Wow, not bad at all.....maybe I'll try it one day (if I can bring myself to leave my precious Sport + more for a second ).

Yeah was in a mixture of Comfort and Sport rather than Sport+ 😀

Oh and itís worth mentioning I was driving for 13 hours excluding breaks. Never once felt uncomfortable on Adaptive set up. Donít think itís harsh at all and it just eats miles.

I second these numbers on almost the same setup. I have a '20 G20 330i M Sport staggered 19's. Getting 37-38 highway, 24-26 city. It has 4K miles on it.

Most of those miles were done at 80 mph. Around town, prior to the road trip, I was getting 25 mpg. Total miles on the car so far are 500. I expect the figures to improve as time goes on and things wear in. These figures are pretty close to those on the 430Xi GC I just turned in. Pretty good in my book.

M340i economy is remarkably good

On a recent 900 km return trip down the South Island of New Zealand on main roads in my M340i (X-drive) I got 7.3 l/100 km (there and back). On the way south, with air con off and generally observing speed limits, I got 6.5 l/100 Km - amazing for a big six. That B58 is super-efficient. But if you use all the performance available, you can expect to pay at the pump.

Have only done about 800km in mine so far but I'm getting around the 12-13L/100km on average. Mostly short trips, very rarely over 60km/h zones (not travelling far due to covid), and half of them in sport+ or individual.

It's slightly more efficient than my F30 340i and getting closer in efficiency to the long term G20 M340i I had loaned to me over Christmas.
