just want to see how the average M owner puts their car to the test.

1. How fast was the fastest you've done in your M?
2. What continent were you on when you did this?
3. Stock speed limiter or was it removed?




Me:

1. 170 on the HUD (which I believe is 167mph in reality) hitting the speed limiter
2. North America
3. Stock speed limiter

This thread could get us in trouble if the po po is reading it:

170 and hitting the limiter
Continental US
Had speed limiter but since been removed.

Funny, I've not tried to go faster since the removal of speed lmiter. Also, just got a ticket last week so might need to chill for a bit.

Would one day like to try out the 200mph top speed. GoPro in hand, just need a road!!

I plan to try to reach 200 on a closed course in the future. How did the car feel at that speed? Was the course an air field? The pavement material is very different on a runway.

Ask Guatav (PM him). He just recently did a high speed run through a turn with bald tired and spun out (search the forums for the video, in a recent thread). He also hosts airfield events every month or so (maybe more/less frequently, not sure). Therefore.. I think Gustav is the best candidate to ask.
