    Still don't have mine. It goes to the SC on Saturday for a list of other issues, so I'm sure they will install it though.

    I was thinking, if they are saying the 155mph update is meant for high speed passing maneuvers, that implies you can quickly accelerate up to that speed. I.e. If driving at 100mph, it's not really helpful to have a 155mph top speed if it takes you 20 seconds to get up there. So I wonder what the new quarter miles times are and how long it would take to go from 100 to 155mph.

    It's the 155 mph upgrade. My screen says "you can now drive 250kph if SoC, engine temperature and traffic allow that"

    I will try that within an hour :smile:

    I report the first P85D doing 250 on german Autobahn.

    Above 235 the speedo turns red! And after one run power limiter kicks in at 240kw.

    The 210kph is now completely disabled. I saw 235 even with the power limiter on.

    Before power cap kicks in it's ok. It just keeps on going after 210kph.

    With 240kw power limit it takes some time.
