This was with VMAX only, Shell Optimax fuel (99 Octane). An indicated 196 is more like 187 mph. I reached this speed on on several places someone where flat like north of Hamburg going to Flenzburg, I actually topped it out several times there.
I also reached this speed between Frankfurt and Würzburg but then I had some help from a slight down hill.
Did you do this speed with the Kelleners engine package or just the VMAX? An indicated 196 is more like 190 MPH. That requires their extra HP unless you have been blessed with a 440BHP+ from BMW. Was the run on a flat road or a slight down hill?
Enjoy the M power
please post the fastest you have gone with your m5... i could only get mine up to 150mph with out running out of road...
196 mph on the meter, have Kellener VMAX module.
