it was pretty cold.. like 35-40 degrees.. but it didnt start beeping until after 120.. i hit.. top once b4 that night.. and nothing.. second time.. beeping.. other times before nothing.. but as soon as i let of the gas.. took it out of gear and slammed the brakes.. the noise stopped.. :dunno: i have no idea wut this sound was.. and i dont want to try it again.. all i know is.. that after 120.. as i went faster the beeping got louder forsure.. i thought i was paranoid. but my buddy heard it.. and we reviewed the video we shot..weird.. do u guys think if i show that video to my service advisor they will consider that abusing the car? i didnt even redline in 4th.. i shifted at 7000... and i dont want to get caught for doing 100+.. i was in a 2001 s54 M roadster.. thanks guys.. your input helps.. :thumbup:

Not sure about those...

The old E36 M's OBC had a max speed function. You'd set the
speed and once you crossed the threshold, the car would
beep like that. There was a "SPEED" button on the OBC.

That's what I was thinking.
:dunno:

Unless, of course, it's a Japanese spec. model - then they all
beep when you cross 100kph.
