Yes it can!

Pretty stoked, I was driving home tonight from a friend's house and I hit my highest speed in my life- 137mph Didn't think the car could go past 130, maybe momentum? I have to say the car was very stable all the way up. Big grin from ear to ear tho . . don't think I'll be doing that again anytime soon, LOL. A good number of you have probably gone faster- anyone else wanna share their experiences?

I still am dying to know how fast I can go on my car. The factory speed limiter is set at 155 mph, but I don't feel daring enough to make it go that fast. Maybe I'll decide to hit the track someday. I don't think I've even hit 85 mph on my car yet (sad, I know).

On my E36, I have gone as fast as 125 mph (indicated), and that was pretty fun. Just like you described, DSky, my car also felt very stable along the way

marti5 is on a distinguished road
Took the 7 up to 147mph while in Germany having the gearbox serviced, managed to find an autobahn on the way home, felt like flying on a magic carpet, awesome, the funny thing was the OBC was recording 37mpg at 138mph

VELVET BLUE UK INDIVIDUAL , IM THE LAST
UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
