Currently, many car owners want to change the speed limit for Mercedes. Each country will have its regulations on the vehicle’s maximum speed. Some countries allow driving at a high speed of over 200km/h, other countries do not allow a speed over 180km/h. Therefore, the factory has coded the speed limit Mercedes to run only at 180km/h and lower. If you want to drive at a higher speed, you need to unlock the vehicle’s speed limit, the speed can be up to 250 km/h. So how to do that? Let’s find out in this article!
Why change the speed limit Mercedes-Benz?
Currently, many models of vehicles are limited by the manufacturer’s speed limit. However, some countries allow running at high speed or according to the needs of car owners they want to change the maximum speed to higher.
So it is necessary to do coding to change this limit on the vehicle. However, we do not recommend this function. Because depending on the country, there will be different speed regulations.
You can refer to the steps to change the speed limit to 250 km in the section below.
Software and device requirements
To change the speed limit Mercedes or Vmax (Velocity Maximum), you need to prepare professional devices and software. Especially coding and repairing software needs to be used by experienced technicians to ensure a smooth and effective process.
* Note: Engine change will not adversely affect the engine power and can ensure the safety of the vehicle
- Vediamo or DTS Monaco software: Software for engineers, which is used for offline programming and coding when replacing a certain control box on the vehicle. Their functions include reading, clearing errors, resetting the control box, changing previous setting parameters of the control box, etc.
