yeah E46 M3s will hit 280km/h on the clock (unchipped .. even though its governed).. true speed i think is around the 270 mark ... ungoverned closer to 300km/h ... you will hit limiter very quickly in an E46 4-pipe ... very dangerous speed to drive at .. the car is rock stable at those speeds but the other drivers on the road wont see you thats for sure ...

leave the speed for the track thats what i do ...

WTF, he was going 259 why the hell did he stop in the first place. He deserves to go to jail for been dumb enough to stop!!!

He didn't stop. If you read the article:

"Because we had his license details, we were able to contact him to tell him he was now a wanted criminal."

The man handed himself in at Edenvale police station and was arrested.​

And I second the harpoon suggested elsewhere in the thread.

Impound the cars - there's nothing worse than a cocky person in an expensive car - they think they can break the law cos they own a flash car... pop that bubble! Impound the car!
