Personal best on a stock Skoda 1.9TDi. It did a 180 kmph on downhill but this is where it touched very comfortably.

When it gets dark we use the car's headlights .

Check the Auto lighting thread for headlamp upgrades just in case you are facing issues with the same.

My Top Speed..
210 kmph- Mitsubishi Galant 1992 Model.. The car was just so smooth and never felt any noise except the wind rubbing on the roof... Did that in 1994 in Kuwait, on the King Fahad Expressway connecting kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
200 kmph max. - Toyota Camry 2005 Model.. This was not one time, I normally cruised at 170-180 kmph on Jeddah-Yanbu highway... 300 kms stretch. I do in max 2 hours.
This is possibly one of the most straight stretch in the world, with bends not more than 5 degrees, excellent visibility (on a clear day of course). The local boys push their Porches and ferraris to 250+ on this road frequently...

The Max speed I ever drove was 150Kmph in my friends Ford Fiest (diesel).

> 125kmph on a downhill astride a friends Unicorn (Never felt that speed though)
> The first time I northed the Ton mark was astride my LML Piaggio Vespa when I had just got my DL and barely weighed 45Kilos.

Thanked: Once

Update: 180 kmph in an OHC VTEC on the NICE road in bangy. This was the first time that I got to drive the VTEC flat-out. I gotta admit, it is ADDICTIVE!! The way it goes till 90kmph in 2nd gear is ohhh.. motoring nirvana.. just awesome. Now I know why everyone just love that engine.
