I agree and would thoroughly test drive the stock car. I have no idea how much a tune would help.

Come on. There are no good arguments for driving 330 km/h on a public road, and you know that. If you take this personally, that's your problem.

The German car makers gentlemen's agreement to generally limit cars to 250km/h (155mph) is the main reason that we still have a 'speed-limit free' Autobahn as of today.

Thought of this too.

While (relatively) safe under the right circumstances (e. g. on a free Autobahn), it's obviously not a good idea to try Vmax on US roads.

xDrive or not doesn't matter. I believe it solely has to do with the tires whether it's limited at 130 or 155.

2nd that. I see the GT as more of a tourer that gives you a luxurious ride somewhere in between 3 and 5 series. But the 6 cyl N55 engine IMO complements the GT perfectly. With the right options the...
