If the charts located at this link http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...7&postcount=17
is at the rev limiter, then E9x M3 could do therotical 316 km/h in 6th gear; not 302 km/h which surprised me a lot when I first read it and responded immidiately with the above post.
This kind of therotical top speed (that is 302 km/) is really not BMW style.
