e30 wont acceletate over 60kph HELP!!!!

I'm working on a friends E30 318i and it gets to 57kph (LETS CALL IT 60) and will not accelerate any further, once the speed drops below 60 it will then be able to accelerate again. Car freely revs in Netural and has no hesitation getting to 60 but once it reaches that speed it feels as if there is a fuel cut.

We have replaced Spark Plugs, Fuel Filter, Leads are new. The only thing we have left is the Dizzy cap and I will give that a shot next chance I get to look at the car. Is there anything that I have over looked?

Any advice will be very much appreciated.

Thanks Dave.
