I had the performance box hooked up, but decided not to look at the small figures at 335 kmh. At 204 kmh indicated, the gps speed read 200 kmh. I downloaded the runs to my PC but the files were corrupted. Don't worry, I'll be doing this again one sunday morning with a friend, and hopefully it will go even faster than 335 kmh because I had to break for traffic.

Great! I was actually surprised on the BM M5 Touring with stock wheels 290 km/h on the speedometer was "only" 270 km/h on the GPS. I recommend you to set the "beep" on the Performancebox at 300 or say 310 km/h GPS speed. In anycase everything will be logged so you just can focus on the road.

But HEY, when do you get your Ferrari 599 GTB HGT F1 One to One

There was some rumblings years ago as to where parts were coming from, a strange character - but technically proficient

He's got quite some reputation for building cars for Hartge etc - stuffing S85's etc into smaller cars...

I have yet to meet someone who knows more about the V10 than he does. His two latest tricks are:
1. Defaulting the car to 507bhp (like mine).
2. Making the BMW performance steering wheel work with the V10 electronics.

Nice job. Did you get a GPS speed on your run? Did you drive the car in S6?

Nice!! That is some serious speed!

Haven't topped out my car yet, max I have done is 307km/h on the HUD when driving home from Germany on the autobahn, even at that speed (and completely stock) it was still accelerating in decent pace but my friend in his S500 4matic was so far behind at that time that I had to slow down a bit

Rev limiter in 6:th cuts in at exactly 300km/h speedo speed
