Jose,<p>The question is, what did you have left as you approached the limiter speed? If the limiter was deactivated was there enough left that you could have gotten more?<p>Don<p><p><i>: This past new years day went to Northen CA and took my bimmer for just a few seconds to 125-128 MPH.

All I can say is that is what the speedo said..I suppose it could be off, but not by 25 mph. The road has a 5 mile straightaway that I clicked off before taking her up to speed.<p>Although the car felt solid at speed, there was an annoying wind/speed induced vibration that set in at about 145.<p>Since then, my car sees 135+ on a semi-frequent basis.
