Actually, I been racing some more like Audi and other bmw's. But there are soooo many versions of those, so it is not always that interesting to mention. I mean, there's also like 1.8 and 2.0l diesels... and they are simply no match.

But this time I was on the Autobahn in Germany. Sunday late night driving back to Hamburg with 3 Canadian colleagues in my car of which one was asleep. I hope you are aware that on some stretches there is simply no speed limit on the Autobahn, so mostly you see those BMW's, Benz's and Audi's driving really fast. They flash their light as they speed up on you to make way.
This time I was behind an overtaking car doing 80. This fairly new BMW 530 (I saw that later) flashed behind me and after I passed the car that was overtaking and made way I also made way for the BMW by going to the right. But I also accelerated when he was about to pass me. I heared him shift back and give all he had. Then I floored it and slowly moved away from him. I drove 155 and was like 10 car lengths ahead when I shut it down to ease my way to Hamburg. The guy asleep was still asleep. My 3 Canadian colleagues were very excited to have driven that fast ever in their life. Though the one asleep could not recall of course... but he was excited that the car was so comfortable that he could sleep through speeding that fast.

So yeah, I also love my CTS!

It takes a while before it finally ticks the 155 (250 km/h). Maybe in the most ideal circumstances. I rarely hit 155 as there is too much traffic. I only managed twice to do that. But every time I travel from Hamburg to Holland, I occasionally hit 135-140 easily.

After I had my AC pump replaced it seems to be slower though. Maybe they tightened the belt too much?
