A few reasons.

First, it Looks cool.

There are allot of cars out there with "very tricked out" setups that can burry the needle.

Especially with turbo setups, S50 motors, and lower rear end ratios.

I've seen a few 400hp e30s. They would have no problem preforming such a thing.

I think the question is, why not? If you had the choice wouldn't you pick the better one anyway?

The speedo isn't the main feature, but it's still a feature.


a car that only does 145, maybe 155 if you have a very trick one, if it already has a 160 mile speedo????
