840 Increased top speed limiter

What is the maximum speed of a X5 with and without this option?

Im not sure which engine ur talking about, the 50 or the 35i, they may be the same when it comes to top speed, I dont know. I have the 50 and my top speed was 135mph. Since I now have the Dinan stage 1, the speed limiter has been increased to 155mph. I think this is what option 840 does for you.

This is not ture anymore. I have the Sport Activity Package. I even got the 20" wheels. Like you I thought the speed limiter was increased but it wasnt. My truck only did 135mph. Just because you have the SA package, doesnt mean you have option 840.

I have the M Sport Package which specifically lists 840 option.

Same here on 2012 35i Sport Activity (with 20s). Lists it on build sheet. 2012 model. Turbo, is yours a 13?

Interesting. You both have 2013s with 20s factory installed. Should be the same build and one has confirmed Option 840 on their build sheet. Turbo, was Option 840 listed on your build sheet? If so, and you hit a governor at 135 that's an issue for BMW...

Option 840 is standard on the 35i Sport Activity model, unless you opt for the 19" All Season wheel/tire combo, option 2LK, that deletes option 840. The base and premium 35i models do not have the 840 option.

On the 50i, you have to order the M Sport package to get option 840. For some reason even though the Sport Activity with 20" wheels has performance tires, it doesn't add option 840 for the 50i.

On the 35d, if you order the Sport Activity package and opt for the 20" wheel option, 2LE, that adds the 840 option.

At least, that's how I believe it works according to the build sheets for the different models.

So strange that the SA model on the 35d and 35i gets 840 but the SA model on the 50i does not. Would love to hear the logic on that one!

What is the real difference for having or not having option 840? Tires with higher speed index?

Reviving this thread...

I'm putting together a 2013 X5d with the SA package and the 20" wheels but didn't see option 840 come up. I'm going to see if this can be added on, as I would like the higher top speed. Has anyone had this added on as a separate option with the SA and 20" wheels? I will probably never use it but it's nice to know that I'm not being limited to 130.

Cheers,
Franc

I haven't seen the build sheet for the 2013 35d's, do you have a copy that you could post or a link to one?

SRSLY????? Any of you would actually drive over 130 mph on a public road in this country? The land of no lane discipline and crumbling infrastructure?

Doing so at a HPDE with no oncoming traffic, flag stations and Armco is one thing. But on public roads? Insane.

I'm not saying that I'm gonna drive the X5 at 150, but here's my reasoning: if the chassis is capable of handing 150, plus it's optioned with adaptive drive and the 20" wheels with appropriately rated tires, then why limit the vehicle to 130? Should all Ferraris be limited to 130, too? But why stop there? The highest speed limit in our great country is 85 mph so why not just limit all vehicles to that? There's a slippery slope here.

Drive safe!

why does he have to justify his question to you? he wants to know if his vehicle is governed at 130 or not, it's a yes/no thing, why the lecture? jeeez.

You don't have to justify anything, you have a legitimate question, either someone knows the answer or they don't i don't see why you're getting lectured.

Well... I've driven 130 in my X5... And I got a ticket for it. Only $250 so it wasn't so bad.

You know all those roads in the Midwest that stretch for miles of straight roads? Sometimes one gets bored on a long road trip and the car just keeps on accelerating. The X5 is surprisingly stable at 130-thought I think the hard limit is closer to 135 than 130.
