    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    you A4's got it easy...we M6 guys gotta watch the Rev's AND the road. i'm kindof a virgin to the speeding thing. Max i've gone is about 120? probably not even. Too many curves and hills around KY =(

    you don't need the speedo if you're got your rpms and gear, a little math and you know how fast you were going

    The fastest I've ever driven was 130mph on two seperate occasions. Both times the car was completely stock and it scared the hell out of me! The car was very unstable. Too much swaying around and shit.

    Since then I've replaced my stock suspension: SLP Sub-frame connectors, Strut-tower Brace & Lower Control Arms; Firehawk/SS springs, shocks, & sways; and LG Motorsports panhard bar. With a 175 shot vs some crazy import, I took it up high again, but can't tell you what. It was near or over 5000 RPMs in my A4 though, so I'm assuming 140-150mph. BUT! My car handled much better. It didn't even feel like I was going that fast.

    But don't street race it's illegal and dangerous! ...even though I want a rematch.

    Somewhere I read the speed limiter was set to 163mph. I've only had mine up to about 130-135 so far. Haven't put many miles on it since I've owned it. Only about 2000 miles in 2.5 years! That'll keep it new, 2000 WS6 w/ 22k! Sits in the garage while it rains here in Seattle (which is pretty damn often!)

    Did 171 mph playin tag with a vette.. Reason i knew i was doing 171 because the vette was doing about 165 when i was passing him and it was my friends vette so he informed me when we stopped. Never the less i won hehe:beer3: but they do make 1 200mph speedodomer for our car but if i'm not mistaken i do believe it is the camaro guages so the lighting will be different and not match the interior (red) of our cars. I know it will fit but as for an EXACT 200MPH guages for our T/As i dont think they have one!!

    You also have to consider what gears you're running when your talking about top speed. Those of us who still run 3:23s will have a higher top end than anyone who's switched to 3:73s. I buried mine once last month too and was still picking up speed so I know I was going faster than 155.
