Ha! that means my lowly 523i will go just as quick as your 540 - I've had over 135 out of her.

You'd obviously be doing it a long time before me though


Think all german car manufactuers started a pact to limit all cars to 155 in Europe, unless you're buying it to race at which point they will delimit it for you (on production of a race licence). However I think most engine software upgrades remove the restriction anyway.

Gee...you guys! I've never been there yet!
I've done 130 in my previous E34 540i, but not in this E39...yet.
I've had too many speeding tickets already.
I have the balls to do it...but not the wallet to support it. :lol:
