The E92 M3 speedo starts in increments of 20 km/h and then halfway switches to increments of 30 km/h. So, it starts at 20km/h all the way to 120 km/h, and then when the needle is pointing directly up, it switches to 150 km/h all the way to 330 km/h. I have never seen anything like this and I was wondering if anyone else had. It is a fun little twist that BMW has put on the car, but I think it is also an easy way to get yourself a huge ticket if you aren't paying attention to the needle and all of the sudden you are going 10-20 mph faster than you thought. What does everyone else think?
BMW does this in the M5, and the M6. I also believe this is done in Mercedes AMG models, but I cannot remember correctly
