Until then, I wont really have much to talk about.
Hi Rodinoma,

I`m german and own an 07 STS V8 export model and it`s not speed limited. I`ve had it up to 276 kph(171 mph) by HUD (analog stops at 260 kph(162 mph) no limiter kicks in. The same with my 04 XLR, had it up to 282 kph (175 mph).
I know the US model STS V and XLR V are limited to 158 mph but I might can tell you soon how fast the export STS V will run because I might trade my 07 for the export V. They arrived since about a month in Germany and my dealer has a black on black one waiting for me
