LuuZ, curious about that top speed at Döttinger straight. I remember from the comparison of stats of the 1M and M135i, both from their respective Sport Auto supertests, that 1M did a top speed of only 243 km/h on the straight in his "official" Sport Auto 8.14.9 Nurburgring run. On the other hand, the only section that M135i was faster was the straight and it did manage a 249 km/h.

And you saw a 270 km/h on the speedo, which is probably closer to 258-260 km/ in real speed. That is a very big gap. So, my question is, did you add power upgrades which would effect this difference? Your lap is certainly no where near to 8.15 full lap of von Saurma, how then during a relatively "slow" lap you did so much faster on the big straight?
