I think moderators should lock this thread put a sticky stating WHY the speedometer is inaccurate, and BAN anyone who starts another thread about this (there have been a couple)

Seriously, though, can we kill this thread all ready?

If your actual speed was 61MPH and your guage read 60MPH you could take the manufacturer to court if you recieved a speeding fine.



Also remember if testing by GPS to do it on a level road. If you are going slightly downill or uphill the unit would show your speed differently than your speedo would. ( if you fall straight downward at 100MPH [ or any speed ] your GPS would show your speed as 0 )
How do you figure that? GPS uses triangulation. So it figures altitude etc..based off your position, thus can calculate speed also if you are going straight down.

Oh well, I just couldn't take my inaccurate speedometer anymore and sold my BMW. In place of it I bought a Porsche 911 Turbo, which surprisingly has a quite accurate speedometer (compared to the BMW). It is only off by about 1mph at 90mph so I can live with it.

Obviously the only real difference between a BMW 325i and a 911 Turbo is the inaccuracy of the speedometer and thus that was my only reason for selling. (wink wink)
