When traffic is around, it is different. But hey, the car can well handle it, and I am not riping by a lot at 140, most people are driving quick anyway.

WOW, i ain't tryin to BRAG or anything, but i usually do 140+ AT LEAST, thats bare minimum, and i try not to, but i just drive, and befor i know it, 140, and then if someone goes to slow in the left lane, and i gotta pass, i reach about 160, and if the roads are dead, there are some spots on the highway that cops just CAN'T CHILL so i do WHATEVER, i know the tickets aren't worth it, but they souldn't allow FAST CARS in canada if they're only gonna be BITCHES about the speed!

I've actually set the cruise control in my mom's car at 205km/h (just under the governer) for just over 10 minutes coming home from barrie at 3am. I didn't pass a car, I would have slowed if I had seen traffic. You get desensitized at that speed, 100km/h becomes so boring and innefficient afterwards.

Also, I usually cruise at 115 in the GTA, and 140 on the 400 north of Major Mac, slowing to 110-115 under bridges or potential radar spots.

Usually flow with the traffic.

On rare occasion, on an open Hwy, I take her up to just over 200.

2nd week after getting my M, on the 403 heading southbound, just past the 410 one nice Saturday morning. I was chatting with the wife, and as I usually do, I glanced in my rear view mirror. To my shock, a cruiser was 10 feet behind me, tailing me. Looked at my speedo, and since I was talking with my wife, and didn't have the cruise on, I had unknowingly gotten up to 140. As I looked at the speedo, I knew I was toast. So I took my foot off the gas, and slowed to 120, figuring I'd slow down to the flow of traffic, and not bring any extra attention to myself. Cop followed me all the way to Hwy. 10 exit, still tailing me closely, but still no lights.
At this point I was irritated, wishing he would just pull me over and get it over with. Made the left on to Hwy. 10, at which time he pulled up next to me, looked over, gave me the naughty finger,
(just like that) lol. I gave him thanks, and he sped off.

Must have been my lucky day............

I flew by some hidden cops at 180km/h in my E30 (which felt fine btw) and started braking as soon as I saw them.

Their radar must've clocked me later, because I got a ticket for doing 43km/h over. (That was a $300 ticket)

I drive with the flow now, 120 and under.

I could have spent that $300 and some good quality shocks for some perfectly legal low speed autocrossing!

I'd like to know where you read that, an ungoverned 328i supposedly tops out at 230km/h (143mph) and an ungoverned 325i tops out at 225km/h (140mph). Maybe faster if you're driving downhill toward a magnet factory, or being pushed by a Lambo.

mine wouldn't go any higher then 220km/h and not even that much. 215 is max i think without a chip. when i raced this celica gt-s we got up to that speed and i just passed with the governer bouncing around 215-220. i never tried it yet though after i sharked it


in theory my car should do around 260-270 http://members.rogers.com/mp328/Cars/293.htm in 5th gear ar 6500rpm

Actually it's limited 206km/h, the speedo are usually off....

My car and my mom's car also say like 215km/h, but it's really 206 128mph)... which is what the OBC says.
