Tire pressure, am i reading it right

In the pre lci manuel, it States that minimum pressure is front 2,4 rear 2,4

But i just checked my car (2015 cp), and it looks wastly different.

Is it 2,9 front and 2.5 rear, Because that is huge difference in presure from front to back.

Huge mistake on label, these cars should be 2.4 as in the car manual.Should be increased more in the rears for heavy items like luggage.

That is odd

The thing is that I have test driven another m5 cp, and it was way more compliant over rough roads, the my m5.

I just checked the pressure, it is front 3.0 bar, rear 2.8, no wonder why it feels so stiff-

Mine has drivers pack also, and i guess that could possibly be the reason for much higher pressure on the label.
But it still does not explain, why the pressure is different from front to back,

I rarely go over 200kmph, so i will lower the pressure to 2.4

I am not convinced BMW would make a mistake on the label
