Well, women don't seem nearly as interested in testing the limits of their abilities as do men. After all, there is really only one way to know how far your abilities go -- exceed them.

not sure

i can't say that any of the cars that i own made from 94-on are governed at 125mph. then again i guess it really depends on what vehicle you are driving obviously if your driving a Ford Pinto theres no way in hell you gonna reach 125mph

75' 450SL
94' E320 Sportline coupe(you are missed)
99' CLK320(my baby)
05' C230 Kompressor

I think they're governed at 130 mph.

My friends "domestics" are governed at 100 mph, so I guess we are elite class after-all. ML320 is governed only at 115.

What is typically regarded as the most difficult action to perform driving? Let's assume parallel parking in an urban setting. Out of all the female drivers I have witnessed, very few can parallel park successfully.

Are you sure? I thought it was governed at 130 mph, along with all other MB models with the exception of the AMGs, and some of the new sport model MBs.

Trust me even on cruise control our 99 ML320 didn't want to go faster, than 115.
My E320 wagon got 125.
Had no chance to test ML55 yet, but I am not holding my breath.
Than I am only allowed to do the tests when my wife sleeps in the car. You know .... she is the "better" driver.

or shall I say "back seat"?

Hmm...might be a 99 thing. I've read many posts of MLs stopping at 130.
