    And since I took a pic for the “Show us where you work!” thread:
    [​IMG]
    Audi allroad quattro. One of the cars I’ll never own but drive occasionally. The HUD says 238 km/h. :)
    It’s difficult to take a picture with one hand and steer with the other. ;)

    You´re lucky...From time to time I´m also very early on the way for work, but I drive the wrong car. Can´t go 148mph ;)

    I've driven the autobahn. I wasn't very impressed at the time because there was a lot of road work. Fastest I was able to go was 185km/h and only for a short time.

    Yes, there are bad and good sections on the autobahn. I live about 2 miles away of the A8, and there it isn´t that bad, 6 lanes and no speedlimit...:)

    Oh sry, are we derailing your thread now?!:(

    I just thought about the time and discovered that my camera was still on winter mode. So it’s been 6:23, but still not much traffic.

    It probably won’t turn into a Q-like derailment. ;)

    All free and you're in the left lane? ;)

    Once did that with 240km/h with a company owned S6 and immediately got flash light by a Porsche :eek: There is always someone faster :D

    Yep, very true ;) All emotional :hug:

    If you’re trying to take a picture while driving one-handed and that fast, there can’t be enough space around you. And even without the camera, at this speed there’s always a car in front of you, even on the left lane.

    PS: forgot to add that the customs officer asked me about the worth of the Co-Pilot. panzer had written $50 on the package (was used), I told them “if new it would probably be around $130” and they calculated for $150 … for a package labeled as gift. :p

    you guys are absolutely mad.
    when i was a taxidriver i had to try the potential of a 220 cdi one night, 160 in a 60 zone.
    and at no point did it occur to me, to drive with one hand and take pics with the other.

    When I was there we rented a little Mercedes hatchback, I forget the model, because they are not as common to see driving around here in the states as it seems to be there. The fastest it would go was 185 and yes we had people flashy us, but it drove awesome, straight and true, no issues.:)

    I payed 19,99€ fees. So including price, shipping and fees I payed ~124€ for a bag that would cost $130 + shipping ($30 or more). In the end it’s similar cost to a new bag …
    I don’t own a GoPro or similiar head mounted camera … :angel:
    So this is why you and mole need to come to the planned meet-up in fall. I expect mole not to complain too much about your speeding. ;)

    I think I didn’t get a car with lane keeping system yet, but I've heard you could drive them trough a turn hands-free for a short time. Like waving at your fans with both hands out of a cabriolet at 100 km/h. ;)
