On the loaner S40 I had a while ago, I went up to 125mph with no problems. I had to slow down only because it was equipped with snow tires S rated... haha, didn't really want to get myself killed you know.<p>I'm quite sure the car had quite a bit left, it was still accelerating.

Re: (norton37)

So far, I don't know what the top speed is! I have had it several times to 130 and backed off. 136 to 149 is what I'm being told. I live in Ohio, so I don't think this is a Euro illegal. No mater who says what, I'm glad someone decided to NOT play by the rules! This makes me more than a little concerned about buying an aftermarket chip to get the additional 40 hp. I'm tickled pink with what I have, but more is always better when it comes to going.<br>Doc
