Subjected to a 70 mph speed limit in the UK I've recently driven through Germany on route to Poland - the car eats motorway miles - cruises comfortably at 120/130 mph effortlessly and runs up to 150 mph with no effort at all! Fuel consumption suffers marginally dropping to 31 mpg - an amazing car - prefers 98 octane super unleaded

Thanks - the gearing in 8th is such that at 120 mph the engine is running at just over 3000 rpm so it's really not stressed!

Have now covered 5200 miles in 3 months - on latest trip to France I drove about 900 miles in total and at a steady 90 mph on the autoroute I used almost exactly 50 litres for 420 miles! Not bad!

wow that is awesome.

a 6 speed would be at like 5000rpm at 120mph. but i guess it also depends on the car. the 335i/435i have a higher top speed than a regular 3 or 4 series
