Not sure about the UK but many countries require the manufacturer's to set them too high. Mine reads around 10% too fast compared to my GPS navi. Supposed to keep you from speeding apparently. Big brother looking out for your well being Cool

wouldn't be fussed if it was 2-3mph but 8 seems a tad much.

What are you comparing your speed to?? GPS? The speedo may well be nonlinear and the gradations are in all probability not precise. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

I would live with it as it is, at least you aren't likely to be speeding.

Standard size wheels/tyres? I know having a different rolling radius can affect the speedo reading but 8 mph seems allot.
