Same sensor, different calibration.

Like I said its not a deal breaker as long as the odometer reads correctly, my '11 E92 was very close on the speedometer so its not all BMWs. Same with my old 535, but honestly I never checked that one against a GPS, but I never remember getting dirty looks going 80mph in the left lane land (70mph speed limit) like this X1 lol. Maybe the Ms get closer calibrations, who knows.

But I did notice that when I set the cruise at 70mph the little extra cruise needle goes to 72mph and thats where the speedometer sits as well so thats 2mph in gauge error right there. I guess overall its a good thing since my wife drives too fast anyhow and its her DD, I havent told her its that far off
