RE: 2004 E500 Speed Limiter
I understand that it is a ECM issue as I have been using programmers for years just not on the MB. According to the specs(this is my wifes car)The speed is limited to 130! I have replaced the OEM tires with the Pilot Sports that are higher speed rated than the OEM's and are run flat as well.
I live in Texas and we travel on very long straight roads from time to time and if I want to go fast the MB is not the speed demon I would pick. My motorcycle makes over 700hp and will run over 145 in 1st before the shift light comes on so don't worry about my speed runs and the law.[:)]
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW--What a Ride!"
