Whats the top speed of 550i (what's the highest you've ever driven - tell me the truth...)? :D

I haven't taken it anywhere to try and max it out... but it hits 100 effortlessly just getting on the freeway. But, usually it doesn't because I don't have a radar detector and I chicken out ;)

In my 2004 325i I took it up to 130 once. I think the 550i is electronically limited to 155 due to government regulations. I know the M5 can hit over 200 without the limiter!

(all speeds in miles per hour)

The M5 is gorgeous, very true. I test drove one though and at normal road speeds it's like driving around on a roll of sand paper ... and the mileage is really really low, about 11-12. With this 550i I'm averaging about 18. It's about the same # of miles tank-to-tank as I got with my 325i.

The 550i w/ sport package is just missing the M badge and the front side vents, when compared to the M5.
