X5M Video question (Speedo)

Hey guys.

This guy on youtube has uploaded couple of videos of X5M arriving at the dealership, i guess he works there

Every time he takes a video of the interior, i see a EURO SPEC SPEEDO, how come?

take a look

YouTube - X5M arrived.mpg

I c, i know that much "dude"

Good to know, i just did not think it would be so close that i could not tell the difference.

I had a Canadian coach and Canadian teammates, and they had an accent, i guess because they where from Quebec.

Whatever thanks for educating me

That's my sales advisor, Andy, at Dilawri BMW in Regina!

Great guy - best sales advisor EVER. He did videos for our X6M, and my car, too.

Looks like they are selling a shitload of XMs!

No man, I love Canadians, you are great people

Do you know what are the challanges to export a car from Canada?

I should probably read Canadian customs handbook, somwhere online

I know more about bringing US cars into Canada...our requirements are a little tougher than some US requirements (5 mph bumpers, daytime running lights), so not sure what to tell you...you would look at the US customs site for info I think...

I liked my Corvette speedo the best, it was 0 - 300 and it would just move the needle from mph to km/h...smartest way to deal with it. When I drive in the states now I use the heads up for the mph...
