My 316i is a 1,8l 8v with a modified engine and shifted rev limiter, thats how I get 219km/h out of her. I worked out the rollout at 6500rpm (limiter) and it is a true 219km/h.

Lucky me, my speedo is dead accurate at that speed.

Why do you guys think a 316/318 can't do 200+? Almost any car can reach that speed, it just depends on how long it takes to get there. I just feel safer doing it in a BMW, the car is more stable.

1992 318i (stock) 210-220km/h
1992 318i (4.44 rear diff) 180-190km/h
1994 318i (Dinan modified, weight reduction) - untested
