Onramps are great places to accelerate through a sweeping turn - I have a number of favorites nearby. I regularly top 100 mph on an onramp near me - very safe - no other cars nearby, and no police radar. I can't wait to take the m5 on the same curves.MRichmond said:The risk of tickets is always present, regardless of what you are driving. But there are ways of enjoying cars without exceeding speed limits greatly. When I piled up several tickets shortly after getting my license, I was threatened with losing driving privileges altogether if I got tagged again. This made me focus on things like on-ramps, off-ramps and back roads. Now, I have added toll booths. There aren't many laws against accelerating at a rapid rate as long as it is not done recklessly. Although I have (somehow) gone 15 years without a speeding ticket, I am sure I will get one again. I would rather be driving what I really want to be driving when I get one.
You can either join a local track event to unleash the car full potential, or look for some desserted mountain roads near your area.riaz said:I just got a speeding ticket today for driving 75mph on a 55mph highway; am wondering how will I ever be able to enjoy the m5 and if not is it really worth owning one

Ashok, have you considered the mini RoadPilot, it is excellent and gets far better ratings than Origin Blue 2Ashok Arora said:I must say that it is very easy to go over the speed limit in this car. Travelling at 45mph feels like 30 and 75 feels like 60 etc. Thank goodness for the heads up display that helps me judge the speed.
I am having my Origin Blue 2 refitted into the car as we speak so that will help with speed cameras. New LE30 goes in tomorrow.
