Hey, question for you... how come the RPM lights on the M3 are not lit? I can't tell what your redline should have been in that picuture. Do all the lights go out?

Question Time To Revive An Old Chestnut

Question. Does anyone actually know how off the E46 M3 spedo is at certain speeds? Or if it can be corrected by tire size? Thanks.

I asked the same question a few months ago. one of the members refered me to an old motortrend, or road and track article. They said it could be between 8 and 12%.

BTW...way to resurrect an oldie.

125mph...on I-10 going to houston...

i thought limiter was set at 128mph for stock (w/out shark) 330ci??

what happens when the limiter kicks in? does your engine die?

Did a 140 MPH in my old 525i. The only reason I was able to do this was, it turns out there was an accident miles down from where i did the 140. All the state-troopers were that.

I did a 134 with my 330Ci. Haven't gotten the chance to try to hit 140 yet. Maybe next summer. I'm paranoid about doing stupid **** during fall/winter. Performance tires get hard, less traction, and BAM! dead.

haha, 105 in my contour. But hey, all I have is my school permit. But after school I got drive on the DEAD back roads which have some nice curves and straights. Absolutely no one is out there at 3:00 when school is out. It's nice. I really don't think it will go much faster than that. But I did have two people in the car..so maybe it'll go 110-115. It definitely was not a comfortable feeling, shaky, loose, etc.

My Ride: zhp gone, e70 now
Just broke in my ZHP today so havent gone over 100, but gone over 140MPH on Autobahn for extended periods in A6 TDI Quatro. I think it was 2.6 disel. Few times had to get off the passing lane to let some faster cars pass.
Felt very confident all the time, rain or shine through out my whole trip.

About 160MPH

I raced a mustang today and hit over 150MPH and I def. go over 100 MPH on a regular basis. I'd say the top speed of the car is almost 160 the way i have it setup right now... Sometimes i feel like SC'ing it but i'd rather just upgrade in a few years to an M3 / M4 or even M6 if i'm lucky.
