What's the fastest speed you have gone so far in your xb?

I have only had mine about 2 months and hit about 90 on interstate 97, didn't really seem that fast though.

Haven't cracked 90 yet, but did get up into the high 80s. Going that fast I tend to look more at the road. So far the only stretch of highway that I've been on where I'd consider going that fast is about 4 miles long :)

i was checking out the top speed in 3rd gear in my automatic xB and i hit 100mph @ 5800rpm in 3rd - do not know how fast 4th would have gone but that was fast enough for me ;)

i hit a few open areas going up to Cambria over Christmas and opened it up a little :D

it cruises very nicely @ 75-80mph and the ride was very stable, even in high winds i encountered going and coming...

I too have gotten my car up to 85-87 mph, I was constantly lookin' in the rear mirror(for coppers). :eek:
Yea, I was watching for the cops when I hit an empty stretch of highway at 118mph :eek:. Only time I've ever done it. I try and stay at 65-75

Wow a 118, now thats a goal I have to top hehe. Will probably achieve it when I race my friends Si. I know I have done well over that in the Jetta, and it wanted to keep going.

Well considering the tach reading it still had another 1500 rps at least. so probably another 10mph. Thats if it was in fifth gear which I am assuming.

I've only hit triple digits maybe three or four times, but I did find this youtube video. Video is kinda boring but the guy gets up to 149miles per on his AUTOMATIC '08 xb. My guess is theres an electronic limiter that stops it from hitting 150?
