Re: (97GLTbrick)

Well of course I'm talking about being on the track! We wouldn't want to talk about anything illegal on this board... I'm just wondering what peoples top speeds are and what the maximum top speed on a R with a chip!

Re: Top Speeds (racinrs)

172 MPH (Turkish Tuned S60R on the Auto Bahn) I don't know if it had more cause it was getting pretty high up on the tach and the Speedo was buried. The speed was registered by my Garmin 765 GPS, Max Speed. I was a little anxious at that speed as I was only a passenger, and that is fast!!!

Re: (MagoonR)

I got up to 155mph in my first R on the autobahn, going that fast really isn't fun though...

I love it how people need to bring up the "illegality" of this topic.... loosen up! For all I know, Catless DP's, big brake kits, coilovers, loud exhausts...just to name a few are all for TRACK PURPOSES ONLY. I dont see anyone getting prevented to talk about those things... <p>Aaaanyhow...<p>My old S40 was taken up to 140MPH<br>The R so far has been taken to 130MPH

Re: Top Speeds (racinrs)

176 mph according to the 2008 M5 that was trailing me on the track. His speedometer reads higher than 160.
