: Another difference between the Steptronic and your 540iA is that the Step is a 5 speed transmission.

His 540iA (non-Step) also has a 5-speed transmission.

My guess is that the tires on his '99 540iA Sport are rated for ~155mph, so that's where the limiter was set...

His car was a European Delivery, but these cars are built to US specs, so I don't think it's 'cause he picked the car up in Europe.
