Top Speed G30

Just wondering what is the top speed you made on your G30 (VMAX off)?
Is your tacho showing more than 263 km/h?
Which engine and what mods do you have?

I have a DME flash with vmax limiter deleted but it did stop at 263, DME says it's because the digital speedo doesn't register more than 263. I was just too concentrated on the road ahead to notice the RPM. On track ofcourse lol

that's strange as i saw one video of a guy driving g31 540i going above 263 up to 300. For some reason I can't find it on youtube anymore to attach it here.

I wish it could be coded somehow to show whatever it is

Autobahn run 187 mph/300 kph. Traffic got in my way so I haven't hit it peak.



My car is an American spec but I live in Germany. Speedo is showing mph and kph in smaller numbers.

I had a German tuner modify it. ECU tune with increased top speed limiter.

So he tuned the ecu for more power and flashed VMax limiter off ❓ so you could go past the 156? Or did he only remove speed limiter? Sorry trying to be specific if stock car power can get to 187 or if tuned power could
Thx and sorry

Increased VMax and about a 17% hp increase. I can't recall the torque increase. I didn't want a tuner who promises a crazy hp increase and it ruins my reliability. Top speed is more important to me here in Germany than 1/4 mile times. 155 mph isn't that fast here in Germany IMHO. I think a stock M550 could hit 187 mph with a removed VMax. That's just a guess.

Cool thank you, nice clear vid! Could you do faster? Figures tuned car would hit higher than stock by 8-12mph when there's that much drag/resistance.
