Yea Sorry, I don't have a vbox. My gps has read over 155 also. 161 mph. But I guess that could have been wrong as well.

Both Kenton and I were hitting brick walls in cars very capable of exceeding 155mph.. that's all I know. :\

Ive gotten a few text message pictures from one of my Stage 3 customers in Georgia who has hit over 190mph a few times...

Custom Stage 3 71mm Build - Larger Intercooler Stage 4 Intercooler - Stock Midpipes and HPF Ti Rear Section... Made 850whp on Race/Meth.

He obviously has the Speed Limiter Removed...

what I don't understand is the dash is showing you higher speed than 155 but the vehicle actually getting limited at legitimate 155. Do two systems monitor speed?

Not expecting you to know, just weird reading what you all experienced...

Most speedo in every car that read that high are usually off by a few mph. Probably just trying to save your life..

Thats a very valid point, I know that the wheel speed sensors are used for ABS and I would have assumed that those were also used for actual speed, but I know some old cars used a cable drive off the transmission, not sure if its the same for late model bmw's or if its off the can bus. One would assume it would be off the can bus.

I looked at this video again. The dash says 173mph and the VBox says 173mph but the tires are taller so that might explain why they read the same. Stock tires will probably show the dash reading much faster than it is.

Different Tire size and what not plays a factor there also

I was just told that the E46 M3 uses a speed sensor in the diff to calibrate the speedometer.. i'm not sure i'm buying it though.

Was that run with or without your speedlimiter in place?

Those wheels are awesome!!! Makes them even more bad ass knowing what you went through to get them. Not to mention they match the X5! These pictures of you and Kenton's rides are making me think about picking one up for myself!!


Looking so good guys!

"These two 900+whp BMW E46 M3's were at it all weekend long. Dialing in, tuning and adjusting, they were at the top of the podium for the European segment along side with the Porsche crowd."





"Come Sunday, Marcus de-tuned his car so he could hook-up for better passes. "
