Speed limited new cars....

Post by rodbargee » Tue May 07, 2019 1:14 pm

With the advent of speed limited new cars in the offing, does having a near 200MPH vehicle make it more or less attractive to the car driving enthusiast :roll: :twisted: :twisted:

Nice to see the forum back on its wheels thanks to all those who have had to spend the last few days Under the bonnet so to speak :D

More attractive as it appear to only apply to certain new cars from a date in future and is alleged to be able to be switched off.
E65 B7 4.4 V8 supercharged No 106 (1 of 7 in UK) - purely for pleasure
E 39 523i for winter and track day - leave it anywhere
E92 325i - written off by X5 I was not driving!
E92 335D Twin Turbo - sold to Sytner Alpina
E 60 - 525D new - sold to Cooper BMW
E 60 - 530D new - sold at auction
E 39 - 520i new - sold at auction

Will be overrideable with the throttle and controlled by a stop button on the dash from what I hear.
