They should have made it even more fuel efficient in the first place before replacing them with turbo 4s and 6s.
It is in the CPO world when now you have an M3 worth about 45k and about 3 years old with about 36 - 45 thousand miles on it. People shy away from it when they see it maxes out at 20mpg on the hwy.

If the M3 got say 26 or so on the hwy or even 28, the CPO sales would go through the roof. Now you have a sweet car that can actually be used on the daily commute to work.
