AV8R4AA is on a distinguished road
First road trip on 4.6

Took Big Red from Dallas to Lubbock.
About 300 mile one way. Vehicle did well.
Mileage was lower than my 2004 with the 4.4.
About 16.5 MPG highway average.
I averaged 17.4 on the return trip.

At a solid cruise speed of 75+ the RPM was near 3K.
Running very healthy and strong.
Very fun to drive and a pleasure to own and operate.
If needed, kick down to pass another car was a
non event.
2000 528it (sold)
2003 4.6is X5
2004 4.4i X5

16.5 mpg sounds about right with my 4.6is as well.
This engine is thirsty all the time.

wpoll will become famous soon enough
Bet it was blast! I must find one of those big V8s and go for a ride one day...

Just a short ride, mind you. Don't want engine envy - not at our fuel prices! Your road trip would have cost me NZ$350 - just for the gas!!
