~140mph -- give or take

it was pretty scary, so I backed off to about 80, and this cocky dude in a red camaro passed me doing ~90. he got puled over a minute later by a state trooper driving the opposite way... my V1 went bezerk, cop pulled a U-ey, passed me, caught up to the camaro and pulled him over. laughed my ass off ... that guy must really hate me.

Speed limiter is max in the car.

I don't look at the speedo on the bike.

I broke 140 on the Speedo the other day "racing" that Viper. Of course the speedo is highly inaccurate at that speed, but the car was very solid.

Also there was NO-ONE on the road except me and the Viper. No one should be going that fast with other cars on the road... it's one thing to risk your own life, it's another to risk other's lives.


Keep it safe! And if ya really have the need for speed, take it off the highway and onto the track!

Happy Driving!

I really love reading these posts. Especially since 2001+ US spec e46 are speed limited to 135mph (155mph for the ///M). The ECU determines the speed from a signal from the speedo... the accuaracy, or inaccuarcy, of the speedo isn't going to change the indicated speed when the limiter kicks in. Must be a lot of chip'd cars out there!

Speaking about chip'in, anyone know anything about the Shark for the 330?

BTW, all you speed demons have been reported to your insurance companies. The price you pay for postin' this stuff on the Internet

143mph on my 323 with just Dinan s/w. I'm pretty sure it was accurate because I did the "reset the avg speed thing" on the computer and that's what it read. I know the speedo is 5-7mph off at that speed.

Well I'm lucky. Over 100 everyday and hit the limiter @135 at least once a week...living in Germany has it's advantages. Don't know how I'll ever survive going back to the states with my 330.
