    easy! i was just referring to "i didnt buy my car because i wanted to be safe". i didn't mean to be judgemental. from what you wrote, all sounds peachy. nothing i wouldn't do!
    people here are used to higher speeds, and no passing on the right side for example, so actually the other drivers are a bit more predictable than on american freeways. but i actually prefer highway travel in america, it's much more relaxed. it tends to get pretty hectic on german roads.

    you really get used to traveling that fast. some years ago, i went 120+ whenever it was possible. but one starts loosing the respect for the speed, that's where it gets dangerous. my normal cruising speed is a comfy 100 mph, less stress.

    i really try to ignore that subject. but at 100 mph it's probably 12 l/ 100km. roughly 20 mpg. at twice the gas price, though. one reason not to loose the 2.73 rear end and go for a higher ratio. 2600rpm at 100mph.

    the majority of people that buy these cars buy them for the performance, and to see what they are capable of. ie: top speed but you all knew that

    Car went 155 mph at exactly 5500 RPM in 5th gear w/ stock everything but airlid and partially stock exhaust. 6th gear wouldn't pull so went back to 5th. Eclipsed 155 to around 158 but then had to shut down due to a semi truck coming up fast about 2 miles down the road! Was prompted to slow down when wife went, "TRUCK! TRUCK! TRUCK!. Almost had to swerve around the back-end of the semi-trailer to finish getting it slowed down with the crappy stock brakes, but got it slowed down in time. Had to take time to dig my wife's fingers out of the dashpad Pucker factor of 11

    full meaning 4 people? probably not the greatest idea... although: more downforce!
