Even if your car had its governer removed, in the iDrive menu, there is a max speed of something like 203 that you can set the cruise control to....I believe this is the "fail safe" limit that BMW put in the M5 / M6.

FWIW, I think your 335i will get walked when the M5 is halfway through 3rd. Just a guess.
