The M3 manual (US spec) claims 143 mph with a 4.1 final drive.

According to Unbeatable BMW,
The original M3 is capable of 146 mph, that's the euro config with 3.25 final drive, .33 Cd.

The Sport EVO, with a longer 3.15 final drive, same Cd and more HP is "only capable" of reaching 154 mph.

I'm assuming those numbers are in "perfect" condition.

Draw your own conclusions from there.
