The reason I asked for your guys VIN#'s, is I was checking your factory installed option codes, looking to see if it was speed limited in anyway, such as:

S118A Top Speed reduction
SRM2A Top Speed US/CDN

Neither of you have either of the above option codes, so that is not it. It also tells me that it is limited to 130 mph by default without any option code.

For M-Sport, the following Option is added to increase the default 130 mph speed limit:

S840A High speed synchronisation

This seems to change VMAX-Codierung from Wert_00 / Werte=00 to Wert_02 / Werte=02 to bring it to 155 mph.

So, can you FDL Code VMAX-Codierung to Wert_02 / Werte=02, and get it to stick? If the answer is no, then I suspect it's because the DME Modules are entirely different, and the non-M-Sport's cannot be coded to support the increased speed.
