Just over two hours to go from Indianapolis to St Louis. Highway cruising rocks. The only annoyance I have is that my cruise control doesnt work over 100mph. I'm kind of curious but scared to go all the way to top speed.

I've been meaning to do another top speed run in my ETC. I have the perfect road chosen, a radar detector, and a lead car with radio communication to warn me if there are any cops. I bet I can top 150 again fairly easily... With the tires that are on there now the speedo would read 170 (if it can even swing that far.)

Damn speed is such a rush! Going 140 back to 60, it feels like you're crawling! Love taking my fathers LS400 when he goes on vacations or business trips, goes a little quicker than the Brougham. :thumbsup:

Urb - That is how they look switched off :)

I love the speed rush, not on daily driving though, but long distances, definately 150......

I wanna see where the limiter REALLY kicks in on my S600 :sneaky: :lildevil:

how fast do vauxhall's go?

My 2.0 4 cyl Astra can do 140mph, and the 2.6 6 cyl Vectra can do 150mph :D

These are both the fastest sports models, however, the base 99 1.8 Vectra can do about 120, and the base 94 1.4 AStra can do about 110

No, those are printed labels. The lights come on behind/below them. :)

yeah i know....thats what i thought when i got here. But you have to been here over a year to get a license. I've been here over a year, but why not spend my money on a car that i can keep for more then a year and get brand new.
