I sat in E46 when the BMW dealership car droped me home, they had some young driver he took me on a toll highway, he hit 225 km/h (140 mph) in 2003 325i, the car felt extremely smooth at that speed. I have done 125 mph in my E36 318i, thats when the limitter kicked in.
i know its not a 3-series but a BMW none theless. i was in the car wuith my cousin's 535i 92model (E-34), we hit 240km/h...damn the adrenilin kicks in...its scary stuff, esspecialy back then (i was 14). But the car handled it well, it was smooth, even the window screan wipers were doing a marvelous job at clearing the view.
when i was in the military in germany, in 2000 i bought i bought a brand new 323i. I put UUC TS exhaust, ECIS Cold air intake, shark injector on it for the top speed limiter to come off. Ive had it up to 140mph on the autobahn a few times. That was about the fastest I cared to go when you cant really know what the guy in front of you is going to do. It had some more speed to give though. I usually cruised at 135mph on a good stretch of the autobahn and I still saw ferraris blow past me. It was a great experience, excep for traffic jams that happened in rush hours.
