It's between 133 and 138 MPH. 155 mph seems too high. But yea get a chip and limiter is removed.

Exactly, reading is fundamental

With the exception of your OBD-II cars that seem wierd
All BMW's have a 250km/h limit. 250km/h = 156mph.

So non-us bmws have that limit regardless of year (well after mid 80's when it was decided to have the limiter)

I said that he has OBDI and that I know OBDII is limited to 139-ish. that's all the info that I could give out that I knew was a fact.

When would u ever get a chance to go over 155? 155 seems like a perfect limit to me.

The topspeed of a 325 is ~145 mph and the 328 tops at ~147.5 mph. When the car can hit at least 250 km/h (~155mph) and you want to drive faster the limiter will block the fuel and ignition. OEM 328's and 'less' can't hit that speed.

OK I don;t know where you get those numbers for most of you, but OBDI from BMW stock says limited at 129, a chip will take that off and the car can usually obtain 145-150 but after that it is out of rpms. This is for an american car in europe they might limit them differently, but this should answer the question.
