Huge mistake! Took e60 m5 on 1500+ mile road trip
I'll get right to it. The gas mileage was horrible. 20 mpg was the best I can achieve. How can our government make roads like this and not expect us to speed? I think I hit 185mph before I didn't feel safe going faster. If I ever get a ticket on this road, my defense will be entrapment. btw, on any highways, if I ever speed again, I would recommend driving a few miles, make sure roads are flat, turn back, and try to floor-to-the-metal once you feel comfortable with the road and surroundings on the way back. these AZ roads would stay flat like glass for miles and suddenly become bumpy for some time. It would be quite dangerous to hit that bumpy patch if you're going above 150mph. and I would also make sure you have cell reception when you do this just in case!
As for the car, no issues really.. it was little disappointing in some masochistic way lol. but why would you expect anything less from s85 with extra-clearanced bearings lol?
