One up, low fuel, wind in the back, on a cold day, i think it is ! Never driven BT though, but a friend who owned one claimed he did the same.

Seems to be indicating close to 320km/h - 200mph - no way a standard B10 Bi-turbo could do that kind of speed - even the B5 would be pushing VMax there - more likely the speedo is reading 5% over...

I know somebody who owns an E28 Alpina B7 turbo.
He has stuck the tacho at 300 km/h in Germany autobahn, and the car was still accelerating a bit.
But bmw tacho are known to be very imprecise at high speed, as i know people who have e30 325i, that display more than 240 km/h for max speed (218 km/h in reality)

That's more like 330. 320 on the speedo is a std BiTurbo capable of. I've done but i don't like to put out the camera in that speed...

Actually I know the a answer. It is not real, it is fake. I know since I made it. It is taken from my old site before bmwm5.com. It was started in 1996 and I wrote the article.

Well, I made the picture in Photoshop I think. No more to that story :) The PDF document is a "printout" (or screenshot" from my old site.

I chickened out at app 315 kph :crying: , it was more to come but since I was in a slight curve I did not have the balls to continue.......

I guess reall speed was somewhere north of 290 kph, it sure was fast....

Is it true that if you hold down either an OBC botton or something on the tach with certain e34's you can make the neddles's jump around and take a picture that would appear to be taken at a high speed? Sometime it would show low temp and know fuel 5000RPMs, but doing a rediculous velocity.

Can't remember where I first herd this but, I do remember something of the sort.
