I know this guy ( ) with a green 2002 (hurtin' engine with a slightly burnt exhaust valve) that was doing 170km/h. He can't wait till his rebuilt engine is broken in to see what it can do now!

Yep. I forgot to add that he ( ) has a slightly bigger carb on it (Webber 32/36). By the way it is alot easier to get the old cars to go faster since there are no computers to limit the top speed (but you are limited to gear ratio and horsepower).

Not his ( ) car but damn sweet eh!

we tested 2002- 325is on hwy 403 the engine cuts out at 225km/hr. (the govenor kick in)
at 165 .... i think it's just happen you were pushing against the wind since today was very windy ....

If you can't get your car to go faster than 165kmh, then there is DEFINATELY something wrong with it.........
