M235i top speed - is it really limited ?

Can anyone tell me whether the top speed on the M235i is electronically limited to 130 mph or not ?

I am reading conflicting information on this: BMW USA's site (M235i specs page) shows the top speed as limited at 130 mph and next to it shows [155], which I take it to be the actual top speed if there was no limiter.

On the other hand, the test drive report I saw on Car & Driver's site shows the top speed reached on track as 155 mph.

If it is limited indeed, it will be a deterrent from getting an M235i. I mean, why pay for 320 horses if you will never be able to use them all ?

Any information will be very much appreciated.

1) This is the wrong forum to ask your question
2) BMW's are typically limited electronically to 130mph unless it has the sports package and it goes to 155mph
3) Since they are electronically limited there are many tunes that can remove the limiter all together
4) If a car have a limiter at 130 would stop you from buying a car that is rather concerning

Pretty sure if you option for the run flats the m235i will be limited to 130ish. There's a thread in the 2 series forum all about this I think.
