well, anyhow, i went on bmwtips.com to search some info about my car (99 528) and somewhere i saw that the speed limiter is set to 155mph (which doesn't surprise me because all the german cars are like that, or at least MB and BMW). Now i'm not sure whether 193hp can accelerate you to that point, but i was testing out the top speed, and once the needle hit 140, i hit the limiter....
so yeah, now i wonder - wtf?!
the speedo ends at 155mph, so was bmwtips.com lying or is it that it was reset in my car? (i'm not the first owner)
