Fuel economy from 2013 to 2014?

Was looking at the ordering guides and comparing the 2013 and 2014 (Canadian) and just happen to notice that the fuel economy changed.

Below are the 2013, then 2014 specs.

Why the difference? Different tires? I thought the powertrain's were identical?

This is contrary to what they should do which is to increase the numbers to better reflect the real world result. I couldn't even come close to the 9.1/6.2/7.8 numbers, left alone the 2014 numbers. I question if they can achieve any of these numbers under EPA test methods and guidelines.

Sorry X1 guys. You don't know how happy Mike is getting his first BMW.

When he posts his pictures, you know he'll have a huge God damned smile on his face.

And I'm glad I had a "little" help in his choice.

HAHAHAHA, I don't even know how to check that yet.

The one screen I think it may have showed it at 9.5L/100. (29.7 MPG)
But not sure if that was the correct screen. I will double check later this week.

Yeah, I will give it a bath, and take some better pics. It pretty much rained the whole 9 hour drive home.
But what a fun car to drive!
