that's nice....i hit 155mph...i don't care what a book says...say what you want i got my E30 M3 completely stock with only 61,000 miles on it, that fast....sorry to just feel bad cause you have never gone that for you......
Draw you own conclusions from there buddy!!! ;P

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.
