    i've been up to 140, with the 2.73's and an A4. i don't go too much higher because of the RPM's.

    it all depends on the tranny and gears, but 155 is no problem for an M6

    several factors..1. the speed rating on your tires..and your shut off should be around 162-68. also you could have searched for this answer very easily

    You must not live around me... there are few roads that are decently close to me that arnt fucked up. Made it to 120 one time and 110 many times. I dont really have the urge to go faster either. 0-90 grunt = way better than top speed.

    My life is a

    i believe Leno said it best "it's all about what you can do between 70 and 110"

    I would have to look at the stock program again....but I think it was set at 162MPH for the governor on the WS6.


    I dropped mine actually. To 140MPH. It will never see that speed at the track, so no reason to see it on the street.

    145 is the fastest I have been before chickening out. 120 is about the fastest I go to impress people.

    120mph=lose license for 1 year

    Although I have had it up around 130, but all that runs though my mind is a deer jumping out in front of me

    remember the speed is recorded through the tires..so at high sppeds depending on your tire the shape will misform causing false readings. unless your car has been tuned before your cut off is 162-168

    So if its tuned what should it be aprox? Cause I just had mine tuned at straight line performance.

    well probably either they raised it to something ridiculous or kept it the same

    My auto would limit between 147 - 152 (always kicked in somewhere different)

    Had my M6 155-165.. kinda tough to keep glancing at the speedo at that speed though, but never hit the limiter before I let off.

    anything over 25mph is wreckless driving here.. friend got caught doing 93 in a 30 and they give you the option of jail for a week or license for 1 year....

    why? you sacrifice acceleration ..yes ideally a 2.72 or lower would "raise your top speed..but aerodynamically you are limited at right around the stock limiter anyways
