I Know Regularly.. It Cuts Off Around 135.. With The Speedo Flex Im Sure Its The 130 Mph Cut Off.. Now Im Pretty Sure I Was Over 135 When Racing The Other Day With The Sport Button Lit!!!! I Could B Wrong.. Im Looking At The Road Not The Speedo .. Sorry For The Caps
Fyi I Checked My Vin I See No 840 Option ;(

I think your both delusional!! Your true vehicle speed was probably around ~128 mph. That's 95% of 135 mph. The sport button on a DCT has nothing to do with power nor V-max speed.

Use a GPS data logging app for true vehicle speed and get back to me. IF you don't have option #840... your car is limited to 135 mph(210 kph)! IF you have #840... your limiter is set to 155 mph(250 kph). AND even then... that is NOT true vehicle speed but what the speedo shows.

On my US spec 135i... the V-max was limited to 250 kph(I have option #840). But my true vehicle speed(checked via my TomTom GPS) was only 240 kph.

Now that my V-max limiter has been removed... my true vehicle speed in around 285 kph. I actually have driven slightly faster than that... but I was too busy driving than to look down at my speedo or nav/gps. That was pulling 6,400 rpms in 6th gear on my manual trans. I have 225/255's Michelin PS4's.
