What if that "someone" was your friendly neighborhood BMW dealer?
I kid you not
It was set that way by the dealer
I have heard that when they ship the cars they fill them to max psi
So the tires don't develop flat spots etc during shipping, and when stored at ports etc
But at the pre delivery inspection, the dealer is supposed to take care of all that, and set them to the correct pressure
Not sure if this is true or not.
