He was going to make a mod by running the car on pure alcohol instead of fuel,

but then he drank all the alcohol


the 745 is faster in acceleration too......
but that's probably because 3 women in my car weighin it down

Oh and bob to your question about speedlimits
155mph works out to about 250km/h

and usually most cars with 155mph and power to pull more, go up to about 160-165mph before the limiter kicks in..


reason is also because the speedometer starts lying a bit at those speeds (it's off 7-10km/h)

i've read before that on some bmws the speedometer isn't exactly accurate above certain speeds. It could be that your car reads 255 but might not actually be doing that.
Rim size, and tire size can play a factor in throwing that stuff off as well.

5-7% speedo error generally (between the analog and digital readings), so you could hit 255 on the dash (analog) speedo but the governer is digital, so you may have been just below it.

and about:5-7% speedo error generally (between the analog and digital readings), so you could hit 255 on the dash (analog) speedo but the governer is digital, so you may have been just below it.

if it false although i have stock rims and tires....archie in another car hit 240 and i was doin 250 for sure and i saw that i was cachin up with him and he was getting closer and closer and car would do more...! it was just pulling and pulling.., and i know how does the limit works coz in my friends s500 limit is 215 and when you hit it the speedometer thing just drops dead at that point.. ....anyway i don't want to prove you anything.....
