I was driving home from work at 2am and I saw a e60 pull on me fast so I shifted down it to 3 and gunned it this e60 was still right on my ass. so I pulled into the inside lane and let the e60 pass me when it did I saw vents in the side of the car. ohhh it a e60 m5 right I pulled next to him then he hit the gas as did I he took off I was about 7 car lengths behind at 120mph he kept pulling away 130mph 140mph 150mph but at 155mph I started pull on him at 160 he was just 5 car lengths in front I Knew he was limited to 155 mine will do 170mph.at 165 mph I was right next to him I look over so did he I give him the and hit the gas and left him just by half a car length at 170mph I looked down at the fuel gauge a saw I had 5 miles left in the tank so a slowed down and pulled into a petrol station he drove on

Man you are a lucky man. When i read the article about the M5 they say it just feels like it could keep accelerating all the way to 200. I thought BMW was supposed to take the limiters off of the M5?

From the factory, all E60 M5s at least will be (as far as I know) limited to 155.

With a software upgrade.. well, thats a different story.

Nice... I guess it's a kill since u came out in the front in the end.
