Let's see who is the fastest on a BMW.

Tell us about the fastest speed you've done and what Bimmer you got.
(NOT WHILE GOING DOWNHILL)

FOR ME:

E36 320iSE
Max Speed: 142 MPH (230 KMH)

I was way in the red zone of the revs.

Repost. Check the member lounge, there's like a 6 page thread about this.
How about we limit this thread to E36 bimmers only?

130+ Not really sure it was a while ago. I regularly go 110 though, just takes too long to hit the top speed.

223km/h w/ no top speed limiter. This doesn't determine which bmw is the "fastest". Because almost all stock BMW's are top speed limited. What's the point in going this fast anyways? 0-60 times, 1/4 mile times, top speed, they all mean jack shit. The most important thing is how quickly a car can go around a racing circut, that's what makes a car fast.

We all should be. You gotta keep in mind that out cars (Any non M 3 series for the most part) is nothing but a glorified commuter car... that handles nice. The point is unless you got an M or a 4 some where in your cars badge it's not all that fast in a straight line (stock). The only thing we got going for us (stock) is the handling and balance of our cars. Even with a chip, intake and exahaust the car still isn't really a "fast" car. Even though I got a 318i... I'll give any car hell over 10mph..... especially if there are turns involved Even if it's a 911 GT2 and it's 30 mins and 50 miles later.... I'll blow his doors off as he's waiting for the automatic gate to his house to open up.....
