Speedo Healer

BMW's commonly have about a 6-7% speedometer error on both
speed and mileage. A speedo healer fixes this problem. You may
think you're going 70mph but you're only going 63-64.

Worse, you're adding up more miles on your odometer than you
actually have.

A speedo healer is an electronic device that "cures" this
problem.

How much it costs? And where I can get them?

Interesting … such meters will normally have an error rates that should be regulated from time to time but I am not aware of such device … will appreciate more details on this

Or, just use bigger tires. Its been my experience that bmw's read pretty closely to what they say they're going. My current car reads 65 when it was GPS verified at 69.5mph.

Bigger tires

Using larger tires is a good suggestion. It cured the speedo error on one of my motorcycles.

I have just the opposite reading from my GPS: the car's speedo will read about 71 mph when the GPS reads 65.

I know this is an old thread, but I'd still be interested in a speedometer "healer". Has anyone seen/heard of one?
