Msport Package - Increase speed limiter not for X-drives??

Again...Bmw has another thing is that conflicting each other for the 2013 F10s

When you build it online part of the Msport package "increase speed limiter" is listed for all F10's. On My BMW account when i click on the list of options for my 535xi it also shows this.

but.....

In the official document posted here which was revised this month, under the Msport package only the RWD models get the increased top speed and not the Xdrive models.

Not that its a big deal since i don't plan on cruising at those speeds here in New York but i would still like to know what my car is capable of achieving. From my understanding all standard Bmw's are limited to 128mph top speed here in the US and those with increased top speed option can take it up to 155mph

My 2011 550xi was limited to 150mph. Which, I verified frequently on the Autobahn.

Nowadays, my car should do 181mph, but unfortunately it is "in theory" only.

Alan, beautiful car...but did you pick your car up in Europe? I noticed the rear fog light.. And where did you get your wheels? Are they off-set (bigger in the rear)? I didn't know if you could do that with X-Drive

Is there a definitive answer on this for the 2014 550ix? I'd like to take her above 128 at least once on the autobahn this fall. I will have the M Sport package. Dunderhi, do you know what tires you had installed on your order?

Assuming it works the same way as the AWD 3-Series, the choice of tires is what determines the top speed. If you don't order high performance summer tires, you're governed down to the lower speed. Since most AWD buyers opt for All-Season tires, the majority of x-Drive BMWs are neutered.

Unfortunately it can't be increased via coding either (see the coding forum where they tried). Apparently a Dinan tune will remove the limiter, but as always your tires need to be rated for the increased speed.

If it can't be coded, that makes the decision simple. I'm getting the summer performance tires and a second set for winter. I'm not flying across the Atlantic to hit the autobahn and be limited to 130.

You might want to double check with shawnsheriden over in the coding forum, but last I read they felt it was set in the DME module at the factory and is not something that could be changed via coding.

Mein Auto: 2013 550xi
I just pickup up my 2013 550xi MSport and I definitely have the limiter at 155, proven through real world autobahn test. That being said, I also have the terrible Eagle LS2 tires, which are only rated for 149MPH. I know it is small, but I am shocked BMW would put tires on a car that are not rated higher than the top speed of the car.

One other point, I know when I built my car on the BMW website, under the MSport package there was a specific line item that says increased speed limiter (or something like that). If you go to the site now (which is still showing 2013s), that item has been removed.
