Got the limiter on my E50 removed.
Was able to push it as fast as 275km/h (that is 171MPH) and i have feeling that i could go some faster
with better road conditions. It is really
funny when you see speedo needle passing the
250km/h for the first time :)

Have you tried the speedo on the AC diagnostic mode?
Then you will know how fast you are really going. I compared it with a GPS, and on my E430T it showed correct speed (+/- 1km/h) at all tested speeds (up until 230 km/h). On my car, 230 km/h on normal speedo was 223 km/h real speed (GPS and AC).

Next time I go to germany (without my family) I will try what the real top speed is. Normal speedo shows around 254 km/h at top speed, and I am curious to see if real speed is higher than the 243 km/h specified by Mercedes.

To enter AC diagnostic mode, press "rest" for 5 seconds. Scroll through the menu by pressing driver side "auto" I think 15 times and it indicates speed.

It is very funny, because i was the person who
spread this procedure how to use AC diag to
get real speed..some months ago;) i was not aware that
anyone has been using it..and now i've even
forgot that such trick even exists;)
But then i was owner of c320 ;)
I'll let you know - going to Hamburg next week.
Let's pray for good weather ;)

limiter

I've got a complete replacement ECU from a
crashed car, same model, same year, same part number,
only the EEPROM was reprogrammed by some company
from Switzerland. I will open it soon as i have to
do some major electrical installation on the car
anyway. I'll post the details then.
By the way. Winded it up to the max - 280km/h.
