The following are dangerous...

X / over 90
Over 180 / X
X / under 50
Under 90 / X
There are many factors that play a role in what is and isnt an issue. Without knowing OP, you cant say whether or not he has any problems.

Thanks to everyone that actually contributed, with either facts or humour.
Right, because Google/a BMW forum is a fantastic substitute for medical advice. You're a dumbass.

He asked a simple question. Was he going to die because of his blood pressure. The answer is no. Who knows what else is wrong with him, but his blood pressure numbers are not deadly.

OP, the bp reading isn't really of immediate concern, however I would suggest going to the doctor for a check up and maybe obtaining maintenance pills (bp pills). I don't know if you usually get that reading or if it was just out of nowhere but what I'm trying to get at is preventing long term damage to your blood vessels. Constant bombardment of high blood pressure will cause problems for you down the road. Eating less salt will help, but still, I suggest you go to your doctor for a check up. and with regards to what you posted, the diastolic isn't considerably high but the systolic is. In our field we really pay more attention to the systolic more.

The electronic BP readings like those that you find at a pharmacy are not all that accurate.

Just to post an update: I did not die.
I did see a doctor, my BP readings at the doctors office were 120/70 measured over a 5 minute period. He said nothing to worry about and to keep an eye on it for the future. I was pretty anxious/nervous when measuring it at the pharmacy and he said those things are notorious for being inaccurate.
Once again, thanks to everyone who provided a response to my simple question.
