    I was on my way back home yesterday going through the 40mph average speed check on the A14 North of Cambridge I thought this was an ideal job for the limiter. For a couple of miles it was fine, then all of a sudden, my car lurched forward well over 40mph. I took my foot off the throttle and...

I tested both limiter and cruise on...

    When I start my car from cold the rev limiter is all the way round to 4,500, showing 4 lines. My other 535d (2006) doesn't do this. When I use that car from cold the rev limiter starts at around 4000 and slowly goes up as the car gets warm. Is there something wrong?

    mine just kicked in at 5,500rpm... I'm sure that's not right, it was weird didn't feel like a rev limiter, but wouldn't rev any higher. Then next time i tried in same gear, went a little higher!! :confused

    my m3 is not limited to 155mph does this mean the ecu has been remapped..? On purchasing my bm the previous owner did not mention it was not de-limited.

    Hi all, my R-plate 318i has 7000rpm rev limit, but whenever I try to take it up to the limiter it limits at 5000. It doesnt make any noises or perform badly up to 5000 but just bounces off 5 like its hitting the redline. Any ideas peeps? Thanks. 1 of mates seems to think its the ECU ????
