Calibrated to what? Unless i missed something their's no calibration setting or requirement on the Hardware or Software. VBOX Sport was mounted on the Dash & connected via BT to my iPhone 6, VBOX PT App open on said iPhone 6, correct settings used on the App such as One Foot Rollout Off & Auto Reset on, Mode was Acceleration, Speed Units Mph & Distance Units Feet.

A few seconds before the off i hit the start button on the App & then as expected the various results achieved display themselves on the iPhone 6. I took a screen grab & those are posted here. I've not seen mention in any of the manuals regarding calibration & their's nothing in the App to allow this. I was using the devices GPS as don't fancy sticking antenna on the outside of my car, but other than that what should i have done?

Golfather, Having had my head pinned to the headrest in that car, earlier this week , I'd say the 6.* seconds to 100 is very realistic

Which equates to around real world 45-50% depreciation over 4 years for a car with higher than average miles, assuming the owner got an average deal. That's fairly decent depreciation on any car nowadays :jump_clap:

Slightly off topic, but I can also confirm the top speed limiter on mine has most definately been removed.

There good value for money. I just sold my 2012 M5 with 11700 and a good spec surround view/ soft close doors/ comfort access etc for just a shade over 40k, but you are right ones with higher millage are now sub 37k. I had mine re mapped to stage one, a turner motorsport axle back exhaust system, AFE air induction boxes and 2 piece 21" spit rims. I put it back to standard before sending her off, but there are indeed great cars, I only sold it as I needed a more practical car so I am on the hunt for a RS6 C7. The F10 was the best BMW I have owned and I've owned a fair few over the past 18 years.
