So, what is the answer? Where is the limiter set? I thought we were all stuck at about 118...

128 seems to be the general consensus...

If it'* SC, it'* 128. NA is 108. It may vary slightly from car to car.

O.K. Guys, here'* the answer:

When I first bought my SSEi, I was curious about what the top speed was as well.
So, one day I hit the 401 (that'* our main highway in Ontario) & I just floored it while keeping an eye on the HUD (Hed-Up Display). Sure enough, the speed governor cut it out @ 200 Km (about 125 mi).

I have a 01 SLE...I was doing 180 km/h today - no limiter yet on the n/a car. Ran out of room on the 407 (another major road in Toronto). I am curious where the limit is on this machine. I did not get a chance to hit the switch to convert the speedo to MPH.
