Autobahn cruise control..

had my old 325 up to 215.. you still got some room there but they get really light, like real close to flying at that speed

....it's pretty scary !!!! once you hit around 200kmh in a 325i, your acceleration slows down soooooooo much (it may be sooner, i can't remember) ......you need a good long straight away to really top her out...

there's no secret...beleive it or not, i have'nt opened her all the way up...i have probably done about 200-240....i need to take her to a nice quiet spot to open her up.....i don't think it's cool when people do this type of stuff in traffic..........the other people didn't ask to be involved...
