Could be, its not really that big of a deal to me but I will mention it when it goes in. If it was adding up the miles 5% more quickly it would be a bigger deal though.

I can see maybe 1-2mph to be safe buy 4-5mph at highway speeds is way off to me, if Chevy, Ford and Dodge can show the correct mph I'm sure BMW can get a little closer.
