The W211 E500 brochure states top speed electronically limited to 155mph. I just tested out the top speed three times and mine was limited at 133 each time. Anybody have the same problem or is something wrong with my car?

I have an 04 E500 Sport. I there must be an error in the manual. The car is limited at 135 MPH. This is the case because even with the Sport Package the car doesn't come with Z-Rated Tires and the tires that are on it (I have Continentals) are only safe as determined by the manufactorer to 135 mph, so they limit the car to that speed. An E55 comes with Z-Rated tires standard, so they limit the car to 155 MPH.

the magical powers of the dealership

fyi:
we at the dealership cannot alter the top speed setting of your vehicle in any way, shape or form.
