The fastest I've done is 135 in an E36 M3 at around 2am on a deserted road. I haven't gone up to 100 in my e46, and as tempted as I am I will try not to for not going to jail, and not killing anyone's sake.

My Ride: E46 M3
185mph

I pinned my car down to 185mph. I did it 2 weeks after installing my SuperCharger.
That is an experience that i will probably never do again. The car pulled fine up top, its just nerve racking!

300km/h (I think thats like 180something) in France with my dad in his 360 spider. That was pretty fun becuase we were with his best friend chasing us down in his 550 maranello.

I get up to around ~100mph on a daily basis. However, i have never driven over 110mph Driving that fast is just not worth it to me...not really out of fear of crashing, but rather, the reprecussions of getting caught at such high speeds.

actually yes, way to go you. dont make the stereotypes true. my friend got an e46 m3, crashed it twice and sped away from the cops (ultimately crashing and getting caught) and he got it taken away by his parents. dont be stupid with it.

as for me. i've hit my limiter (135ish) once, just cuz i couldnt own the car and never have hit it at least once.

I did 104 two weeks ago on a backroad in Northern MN. Great straightaway and absolutly no one around. I could have stretched it further but I came to a hill and didn't know what was on the other side. Good thing I slowed down...there was a stop sign and a four-way intersection just on top of the hill!

136 mph on the Autobahn, but I wouldn't want to do that all the time since it was nearly in the red.

It was still accelerating when we took this photo, but had to slow down for the road.

I've done 194 mph (GPS) on a Hayabusa.
186 mph on a GSXR1000.
526mph in a Boeing 777

My Ride: 04' 325ci
The fastest I ever went in a BMW was 140 in my 99' M3, the fastest I ever went in my Roush was 155mph and the fastest I ever went on land was 175mph behind the wheel of a stock car @ Pocono raceway.
The fastest I EVER travelled was 1,350mph in the Concorde from JFK to London
Who can top that, any fighter pilots here?

So i guess nobody is sure.......

Can the error be corrected by a tire size, or is it just that BMW spedos are terribly inaccurate at high speed? At what speed do they begin to waver? 100, 110?
