I had now several times contact with Mike (Mike-Benvo) for my ordered BPM tune , and he is a very intelligent person, and he take his time for the customers to explain all the details about the tune,and also the patience for my bad english !
In short...this is a very friendly & good person

Lmao "autobahn"...definitely. Thats why its in Fahrenheight and MPH and whoever went "damnn" sounds white and youre > 60k miles meaning it cant be ED.

Anyways, nice effort. With raised rev limiter to 8600, v=207 is possible (talking from experience). Adjusting that to 5% difference in actual speed and speedo, puts it at ~197 true speed. But keep trying, you'll get there. Try finding a downhill portion of the autobahn to make it happen faster.

holy fark that's fast. U.S. speed limits are so lame. I think about driving the 'bahn like this every time I'm in light traffic with most people driving 55 in a 60mph zone.

He's in the military and stationed in Germany. You can change your car from Fahrenheit to Celsius and miles to km in about 10 seconds. We tune quite a few cars over in Germany and they even have US spec software on them.

Nice. That's probably a legitimate 175-180.

I know it's changeable but it's just not believable

You don't believe he's in Germany? If you look at his post history you'll see plenty of pics of his ride, with German plates on it.

Not sure why this was disputed in the first place, or why you would think that he would be untruthful.

Here is a picture of his car on the 'Ring

Fair enough for your suspicions. He's a friend of mine and he's definitely in Germany. I never asked him what he did for a living, but I automatically assumed he was on a military posting. He even went to the 'ring last week.

Maybe the only reason you are seeing these from Mexico and the Autobahn is because they are part of the very few places you can do these type of challenges. I live in the Bavarian State of Germany about 1 1/2 hours North of Munich. I hope you enjoyed the video and I will be posting a better one later.
