Where I live in South Carolina the dealer is selling more sdrives because it doesn't snow here and they can order them and keep them under $40k which is hard to hit with a 3 series. The EPA estimate is fairly close but maybe a little generous and you'll probably get about 22 in true stop and go city driving. I've gotten about 31 on true hwy driving but well above the speed limit. S drive is probably about 1 mpg better in town as much due to weight as mechanics.
