60-0 Braking Distance on 550i xDrive?

Anyone know the 60-0 mph braking distance (stopping ft) for an F10 550i xDrive? InsideLine says 127ft but that can't be right -- seems way too long.

Autoweek has the same numbers:
127 ft

I wouldn't worry much about it though. These standardized test don't tell the whole story. Like all BMW's, the brakes are prodigious. I would say tire choice has more to do with braking variation than anything.
