Went over 135MPH last night..how about you?

got off work last night around 9:30 and this porche kept messing with by speeding up and slowing down. so i figured lets see what this E90 can do so i stepped on the gas..went over 135 but not to 140 so around 137..i know the spedometer is messed up..so i guess its really 130..but the car handle great. it felt good...and made me forget about a long day of work...let go of accelator at 135 because the V1 went off...didnt seem like 135 seemed more like 90-100...thought it would be nice if other people shared the experinces on what they have pushed their E90 too..

Not hard to do.

Every open stretch of highway me or my friends "open her up". I hit 100mph daily and 130mph at least twice a month.

Only been up to about 100mph in mine.

When I had the M3, I took her up to 172mph on the I90 floating bridge. Now that was fun.

Is your V1 hardwired in a concealed location? I wonder if it's possible to mount this where the ashtray is.

You still needs to give the unit a direct line of sight through the window out the front and back, it won't work in the ashtray.

mine is mounted on the winshield..just like m3ti stated mounting in the ash tray would do you no good..it needs to be able to catch signals...you can also mount it on your visor if you wish not to have it on your windshield.

140 and it didn't seem to take any effort for the car to get there.

85 in the bay area? Impossible!

EDIT: Oops, you're out in the boonies in San Ramon.

I refer you to my "How fast have you driven the 390 thread" for the answers (many of us here did Vmax already).

It is fun.
