All the talk about safety, accuracy, etc. is moot. The real reason this is done is money! Your odometer works with your speedometer. BMW couldn't care less how fast you're going - but how FAR you're going. By deliberatly setting the speedo to read high they insure that the car reaches the end of its warranty much sooner by reporting more miles than you have actually driven.

This has been discussed before, but do that math and you'll see.

I think it is bad luck to be superstitious
