Yep. Kinda smug, and rather short-sighted!

an off-duty cop.
Expect a prize? It was just for fun... Just thought I would share.

If I was going 185, then I would expect a prize. :-)

That quote is what I'm talking about by ruining my post. I don't care what people say as far as their own opinions, but to come out blasting like that?

If you think that was blasting, you've led a VERY sheltered life. Not only did you choose to act with extreme recklessness, you then had the indiscretion to parade said recklessness all over the forum. I really have no idea what sort of a response you were expecting. Rent yourself some track time at Laguna Seca and knock yourself out. Nobody has the right to do what you did on the freeway. Nobody.

Felicita e un bicchiere di vino con un panino.

It wasn't his wallet size, it was his "rules-don't-apply" to me attitude. And yes, if I see a Gulfstream owner busting an FAR, you bet your behind I'll call him on it.

Yeah, I know.

For some reason I always post the threads that cause fighting.

there is an easy fix for that. Change your profile to 1978 240D and start posting what a thrill it was reaching 75 MPH on 8% downgrade.
I had my times on autobahns, where 120 mph was putting me on slow lane. Last time I drove in 200 kph range only 2 guys kept with me for few kilometers, so maybe they are more concerned about fuel savings, maybe the rain was the factor
We all will have to agree that it is not the car, not the speed and not the freeway that was danger in your driving. It was traffic with dumb asses, that have habit of cutting in fast lane at 50 mph.
Some members are just worry about their rear-ends.

I just read this whole thread and can't help but chime in even though I'm brand new and don't even own a MB (yet). I suppose I feel I have some frame of reference because I'm a pilot and I've gone over 130 many times in many cars as well, and on public roads. As a pilot I would think flyboy would share my attitude that some people really do have a higher level of situational awareness and just pure ability than perhaps the folks for whom the speed limits were designed. If he were weaving in and out of traffic risking another motorist not seeing him and getting clipped I'd be with you but he wasn't. He waited for clear highway and pushed the car to about 65% of its potential; conservative by any stretch of the imagination. I do my high speed blasts on saturday mornings on an out and back trip where the "out" leg serves as a survey of the road for police and obstructions. Then on the way back I get my heart rate up. I'm 31 and an F-18 pilot in the Marine Corps. I don't think what he did was all that bad. I still hate him for having that f'ing car though. Oh and I think you did come off strong in your first post flyboy and I haven't lead a sheltered life at all. You were a cock with a condescending tone and a fatherly BS attitude that no one asked for. I'm surprised the person you attacked was able to stay so calm but contrary to your assertion that he's a privileged prick with more money than sense he probably showed a little side of why he's been so successful. Try being nice.

YouTube - JIDEX Presents :BMW M6 AT 196 mph ( approx 320 kph)

that one's an M6 with the limitter removed and an ecu chip. watch it to the end to see 196mph. that's reckless. 130 is child's play
