all of the bmws are capable of hitting 155, even the 318 has enough power to do it, just barely, but enough. i thought only the m3s and higher models had the limiter set at 155 though, and that is on the 2000 and newer models. i am glad i haven't heard anyone say that the aerodynamics of the 318 won't let it hit those speeds because the body of the car is the exact same as the 325 and the 328.
There is one flaw with his argument however, and that is that the 318 is limited electronically at 120. with a chip the limiter would be gone, who knows if he has one or not but i don't think he does, but that is the only way it would happen. Everyone saying that he shouldn't be driving that fast is a hypocrite because we all have hit top speed in our cars at least twice, just hopefully not in city roads. I also however know as a fact that the svt focus would kill the 92 318, the kid must not know how to drive, that just wouldn't be a fair race.
Also don't bash him because he drives a 318, he worked for it and it is a BMW i say congrats. the 318 is still a great car. I will have to say that i am a loyal fan of bashing anyone putting an m3 logo on any other model, especially the 318. i would rather recommend de-badging the car (just remove the 318 on the trunk, see FAQ section). Sorry if i come off as rude but we all have our own opinions, don't let anyone get too much on your nerves. Welcome to the forums by the way.
