      Any options to remove or raise speed limiter?

      190kph is lame to say the least. The dealer printed off my build sheet off for me, and I see it said 190 kph limit. Sure enough, that's what it is. I wonder if one had a 3 day sub , if there is a way to switch it? Its (190 kph)listed as an option code. Might be worth the 71 $ to try it. Do any tunes remove this? I don't really want a tune, as 93 is hard to find around here.

      Usually, an aftermarket tune will remove the limiter.

      The PREMIUM aftermarket tune...at least with Elevate, which was worth every penny, but I just couldn't spring for the limiter removal--didn't have any plans to rent Daytona...YMMV

      If a tune can remove the limiter, try contacting a firm that does tunes and ask if it's possible to only have the limiter removed?

      Personally I like the idea of having a high top speed but I've yet to try maxing my S80 V8 which will do 250 km/h, I usually back off at 230 since few roads I've been on so far have been smooth enough to make 210+ km/h driving very enjoyable, or even bareable. To be honest I rarely take it above 160-170.

      I constantly get a bad time from the wife because of my girly 115 mph top speed, something about the fact that her car is 40 mph faster. We have a number of places in Arizona where it can be an issue, though law enforcement does frown on it.

      So, are you telling us that your wife hits triple digits when she gets the opportunity? And north of 120 mph?

      Occasionally on I40, there's not much out there to relieve the boredom. Not many other places where you can drive on an Interstate for hours without seeing a town.

      I barely know anyone irl who has a car that'll do much more than 200 km/h let alone upwards of 250! Is your girlfriend single?

      You can have my American wife if you take over payments (on her, not the car).

      Her Audi is speed limited to 155 mph, I've heard true top speed is 165+.
