the Hwy 400 north between Hwy 88 and 89 (after the line 11 bridge) has a very nice top speed downhill run, straight, clear, and 3 lanes. Also on the 400 north, another downhill run just past the first bridge after the Alcona beach road exit, and before the Molson Park exit, also straight, clear, and 3 lanes. (only from mon-thurs at 2-3am)
I'm not advocating that people try this, just stating where they're at.*angel*

I'm curious now where you're taking this run....

I had mine up to 220 BEFORE I was chipped, and I have only really gotten up there once after I was chipped, and I hit 227, and that was at the same stretch of highway that Steve did his.

do you have software/chip?

on both my mom's car and my car the speedometer says about 215, but it's really 206km/h where it's electronically governed. The analog speedo is usually off by 4-7%.

NOPE no chip, (well, none that i know of at least, and i doubt it) but i got her to around like maybe 213-215km/h not EXACT, in the between 210 and 220 you know!!
i had my stock 15's on it, and it got there fairly QUICK, i mean it wasn't like STRUGLING to get to that speed!!
and i believe they're all governed differently, the 325's i believe cut out at 245 i read somewhere!

I coulda sworn that pretty much all the m50/2 non-M engines were governed at 128mph (206km/h). Why would the 325 be governed at 245 and the 328 be governed at 206?

NOT sure, but i've seen pics to prove!!
but are EURO cars governed the same as canadian or not, BTW all the NEW BMW's are governed at 206, excluding M engines, and the 325it, which is governed at 237!!!
i dunno WHY, but its like that, i'm looking at the 2002 model line BROUCHURE and thats what it says!!!

Weird, cause like i said, my 97 328is is governed at 206, so is my mom's 92 525i, and I've driven a 94 325i and it was also governed at 206..... all three of those cars stated between 212-216km on the speedo, using the 4-7% error, the published 206km/h limiter sounds right. Oh well.

Well, I tricked a few of you guys, but ya I photoshopped this! I have seen 204 (indicated) in my car, but that was about it. I guess I should have posted this in the phtoshop forum, but I couldnt resist.:D

My engine shuts down at 210km's. Figure I could hit about 230+ with a chip.

I think i'm limited to 206, but why did they choose 206 as the limiting speed?

One of te worst things you can do to a car is accelerate hard down hill.
