E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Where does the limiter kick in on your 645?

Kinda sux mine came in at 255Km/h (158 MPH) and it still had good life in it. I reckon it could easily do 270-280km/h before it runs out of steam.

How's yours?

The limiter should come in at 155mph on the speedo, but remember the actual speed can be 7% lower due to the in-built ratio. All speedo's are set to read slower than actual by law (at least in the UK). Wheel size can affect the reading as well. For the record I have a GPS system which gives a significantly more accurate genuine speed reading,,,,,,, I know somethings work

Yes but you can code it to be 100% accurate if you're handy with the PC.

"Where does the limiter kick in on your 645? "

Usually by the end of the on-ramp

Nice - I was just thinking the same thing... The intoxication of on-ramp acceleration overruled by the desire to keep my license ...

My 645 hit 135 in Hawaii then felt like the computer cut back the power. It didn't feel like your typical rev cut off
