Btw... speaking of hoods... last week I was talking to a guy who works for BMW AG, he has good friends with M GmbH... he said the reason why the 1M was not offered with an "M driver's package" (ie: a higher speed limiter) is bc BMW was worried about the hoods opening above 280 kph! He said, that M said it wasn't safe above those speeds. Normally the driver's package will get you at least 280 kph V-Max, on say an M3.

Now... I know I have driven quite a "few times" with my tuned 135i to 283 kph verified with my GPS!
