How accurate is the speedon.
I set my cruise control at 70 mph and the car shows approx 68 on the aveage speed on the computer (I reset it when I am traveling at this speed) - the speedo shows 70.
I set my maximum speed warning tone to x and the speedo always goes about 3 MPH over the figure.
My car is standard from BMW - no change to the wheel size which I guess would effect these kind of things??
Do BMW build in a bit of protection for their customers against speed camera's?
This might explain why I have seen posts on this site saying that the cars are actually faster than the BMW spec - maybe they are not and its just the speedo that over reads.
I have to say I expected better from a quality car.
Anyone else see this?

so does your speedo and your avearge mph computer match (i.e set your cruise control at 70mph on the motor way and then reset your av MPH computer and see what it says)
