limit is 152 in my car, which works out to 144 according to my Garmin. I am not sure which one is the most accurate, but it's nice getting there.

I discovered my winter wheels are about 4 mph off on average, getting worse as I get past 130 or so. The summer tires are 3 MPH off on average. I just wish it was dead on accurate, but it matters not since the nanny won't let me go faster anyway. I hope the PROceed 2.0 update will get rid of the limiter.

335i definitely needs a 7th gear. I'll be severely disapointed if the M3 doesn't have a 7 speed.

I'm guessing the Procede doesn't uncap the govenor? Anyone know if Dinan's will?

And the Corvette is the only American car to be proud of.

Dinan's what? So far, Dinan has nothing for the 335i.

Later in the thread he gives a brief description about how to do it.

As far as Dinan goes maybe, maybe not. I know performance software they've sold in the past for other models (the E46 M3 for example) have removed the limiter but that's not a guarantee they will for anything 335 related.

I don't think I'm actually realizing how fast 160mph is. I went 140mph before and that was nerve racking enough. Maybe the govenor is a good thing. Crazy Corvette people. I think it's just nice to be able to say you could go x fast


And I heard around from the guys at LB BMW that Dinan was cooking up some nice mods and parts for the 335i.

It's pretty fast and we're not crazy, insane maybe, but definitely not crazy.

OK here it goes...

I had the cruise control set a 95 mph and i was catching him.. I was like damb this guy is cruising too right on
so after about 20 min of being on a 4lane highway with NOONE on it i finally caught him and as soon I did that fool took off.. remember were already crusing 95/100 at this point. I was in 6th gear so I dropped it In 4th and caught him right away. we pulled to about 130 and he let off i was like half a car length behind him when i saw his car let off..
we cruised back down to about 90 and we had a HUGE downhilll coming I knew this guy was going to try and ditch me but the wasnt happening!
Were doing 90 he hits his lights 3 times and we both jump!! I jumped him a car length right away and started pulling him to about 130 and then we were side by side and I realized this guy was PISSED.. He started pulling me at 140 a car lenghth i was a whole car lenghth behind him till 150 then he pulled another car on me I was like fuck so I slammed it in 6th gear and as soon as it hit almost 160 the governor kicked in... It was like DEAD THROTTLE...I could keep my foot floored and he throttle would come back on as soon i hit 158. that guy must of went to 180 he pulled me 10 cars at least!
Damb vettes got top end like crazy!!!
Just thought id share Im PISSED OFF my car maxed out at 158 i really thought it would go faster!
ok sounds like 335 isnt enough for u. let me know when u are trading in for the m3, i call dibs on ur euros.

Nah, the car will have enough gearing to do better than 160, maybe 180-190, but I dont know about the power. Maybe 178mph.

Looks like 188MPH at 7000RPM

http://www.caranddriver.com/roadtest...ecs-page4.html

BTW, car has .30 drag coefficient, which is not bad. But I'd be concerned about stability at high speed with the stock setup. The shear weight of the car helps a lot.

check out what clarkson says!!!!

Since you have an e92, why don't you take a closer look at the front bumper. There's LOTS of flex in it.

I actually had the same thought about the rear of the vette with the panel flex, but it's just an ignorant complaint to me. Having sat on it, a Vette will probably be my next car. I've always had a Chevy and the interiors aren't the greatest, but they're improving greatly all around.

Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo and Mosler MT900S are superior imo. I believe the Atom 2 counts as a US car as well, but it's practicality is limited compared to the aforementioned cars.

Speed isn't the only thing that matters in a car; I doubt you'd take a Z06 over an F430. The GT3 has better looks and definitely a better interior. Also when you look at those reviews the times are close, but they usually mention how difficult to control the Z06 is with all the power on oversteer it has. I haven't driven either but I imagine the GT3 is a lot more composed.

PROcede doesn't change your limiter and you weren't actually going 158 methinks. Afaik, the limiter is based on your actual speed but the speedo is purposely high by a bit. All euro marques do this because they get a ton of fines if it reads even a little low.

1) Have you seen the shift pattern for the 7 speed? It looks like this
2 6 5 R
| | | |
4 7 3 1
Have fun shifting that.
2) See above regarding sweet American cars.

No, it's not a tired old comeback. Look at the cobalt interior versus the Z06 and they look very similar. Actually I think the cobalt looks a bit nicer. Pic is attached.

You know, you're right. Interiors are the most incredibly important thing in the whole wide world and I should have bought a Cobalt. What the hell was I thinking! OH THE SHAME! Do you think they'll let me change my mind and trade up?

Since it's soooooo inadequate I'll make sure I have my responses ready for all the "well my interior is nicer" excuses I get from people I rape at the track.

Your response proves that I'm right. The interior is poor for a car of that cost. I didn't say that the car was bad because of the interior, I just said the interior was bad. The performance is badass but the interior is just bad.
