80 MPH on the freeway.

Only have 500 or so miles and I'm still getting used to the steering. But I'm convinced I'll rarely go beyond 80.

Around 85 is gets spooky.

When in Germany I often do 250km/hr (150+ mph) on the autobahn so I do have a heavy foot and not afraid to use it.

Nothing better than the 8am arrival into Munich, pickup a nice BMW sedan, and a couple hour "blitzkrieg" down the autobahn to deal with jet lag ;)

As someone who arrives in Munich, and other European cities for a living I can tell you that your reaction time, and cognitive ability is not at its best at that point. Doing 200K + may be fun, but not sure your risk management score is in the black there.

Not an issue, I sleep well on the plane ;). It's around 5pm that things get tough.

100, briefly, not long after I got it. I was passing a vehicle on the interstate, and wasn’t used to the turbo power yet. My wife was with me. It didn’t feel like it was going that fast, and she didn’t notice it; she notices EVERYTHING I do wrong ;)

With the governor disabled, it was really slow and hard around 130. Also couldn't stay at that speed too long as these AT tires are not rated for that speed. Felt floaty, but stable, but floaty.
