Since I got nearly 2000 miles I figured it was time to try speeding a little.
I tried a dozen time, on flats, downhill, in full auto, in manual mode.
Impossible to go past 118mph (digital read out said 189km/h). What's the deal? I thought it was limited to 130/210? 118 is kinda low.

Thanks :)

Don't know if it is but if you're close to Darmstadt and want better performance, get-up and go and/or tuning, see Heiko Sportiv in Weiterstadt (http://www.heicosportiv.de/mainframe.asp?lang=en). I dealt with them and they worked on an S80 and XC90 when in Germany and was always satisfied.

Thanks.

After some research it appears US-specs are limited to 118mph while euro-specs are limited to 130mph.
Oh well.. it's not like I HAVE TO drive that fast anyway ;)
