This ones been up a bunch. There are some really high numbers. Fastest I've gone in this one is about 65 or 70 on the highway(I'm still in breakin). When I had my bike fastest was about 130 or so before I decided that was about all I wanted. If u want to test the top speed of your car I'd suggest finding a nice track, u'll get all the perfect conditions u want there, it will be legal, and u won't be endangering anyone.

on the freeway at about 3am when no one was around, plus i had some alcohol in me (probably not a good idea), but i got up to 113 mph with my 330ci, and i probably could have gone faster. i didnt want to go faster because i didnt want to get caught. it was exciting though.

140

that is the top speed I did. I bet you all thought that a 323 couldn't go that fast huh? I guess if the speedo is not accurate then I didn't do that much. But that is what the speedo read.

Cool Just Recently, close to 120MPH

A bit shy of that. I don't really notice that I'm going fast until I get over 110. I was going this fast at the beginning of the Bimmerfest Road Rally. OK, OK, I know I shouldn't have been driving like this on a public highway with light traffic, but I guess I got agressive being surrounded by so many tricked-out bimmers. Also, another guy in a silver 330 I believe was taking video of the whole thing. I hope he posts it somewhere :smile:

I do go this fast to and from Vegas as the traffic allows since there are alot of stretches where you can do so safely. First time I took the car to Vegas, I got home from there to Irvine, CA in 3 hours flat

I have my top-speed limiter removed so maybe I'll go out to Death Valley someday and see how fast I can go. I know that VinceTopasBlau325 has mentioned a trip there so I'll check with him.
