japan runs the metric km/h....

every RHD car ive b een in from japan was km/h

so? still looks exactly like mine, w/o the km/h.

You must be kidding...do you honestly think they'll put a speedometer that reads to 180mph on the 3?

Japan uses km/h.

The speed3 speedo goes up to 200km/h.

by the way, it's not that much of a stretch, since the speed3 will go 150+.

u guys got no sense of humor. don't you remember when US speedos couldn't go past 80mph?

Hi. In South Africa the 1600 (mine) is marked to 220 Km/H. Had it up to 185 on a quiet piece of road.

Re: Only till 180km/h...

Don't know if they are limited whatsoever as the owners manual gives it a top speed of 197Km/h.

Maybe one day I'll see where it limited to.[quote author=blam link=topic=51419.msg837523#msg837523 date=1153515901]

Re: Only till 180km/h...

my car cuts fuel at 188km/h, but i could easily exceed 197km/h if there was no top-speed limiter. I would guess 197km/h would be @ 7100rpm in 4th gear. In 5th gear I can easily pull to 188km/h, so I think I would be able to come close to maxing out the speedometer @ 220kmh if there was no limiter. The Mazdaspeed3 should really be given a 240kmh speedometer because the car will easily be able to achieve that. What does the mazdaspeed6 / rx8's speedometer go to?

The Mazda 6 is marked to 250. The RX8 has an electonic display for the speed. Mazda claims 234Km/h for the RX8.

Re: Only till 180km/h...

the mazdaspeed6 could definitely do a lot better than 234km/h, even the mazdaspeed3 probably will be able to hit over 234km/h if there's no governer. the RX8 is so pathetic.. what a mazda-failure.
