Just a reminder again that this forum is public. Of course you could have been on private land though.

what's the problem talking about speed? ik that there are speed limits on the road but it's not like i'm saying people should go around driving like crazy and speeding.

That wasn't toward you, but just a reminder to those that have probably done it on public roads.

yes but the incline wasnt that big the thing is, it is a long staight line that gave me more than enough time to reach these speeds altough i think i can still go to 230Kph(142/143Mph)

Just stating because this forum is public and people post cars with reg plates and locations it's on your head if you get caught, that's all. We all love to hear and see it but police watch these forums, not this exact one but like this.

But

142mph from the 1l turbo pretty nuts. Wouldn't mind seeing what mine can do.

Presumably that was in Portugal where you are based - which is strange because I didn't think there were people there with that degree of urgency :?

The overspeed warning should sound at the speed you set it at, if not set then you don't get any warnings.

That doesn't seem enough revs for that speed. That would be 2600 at 72 mph. Is that feasible?
The D has a factory set overspeed gong (I have never reached it of course) I wondered if the E has one

If you set the speed limiter, then it gongs when you drift over it, is that the same in the D? Or was the D just a visual thing and not a physical limiter?

I think if you set the speed limiter through cruise control, it will not let you exceed the limit you set. If you set the speed limit warning through the info screen, then you get a chime when its exceeded but you can still speed over it. Haven't tried the limiter yet, but the speed warning I tried.
