110?

I live in Germany too and don't see many Jeeps doing 110 on the autobahn! Mine is US spec and I don't like much more than 80, but many of my German neighbors have Euro spec Jeeps. I still don't see them going that fast. Now, I don't mind 140+ in my BMW any day!!!

I do 85 - 90 on the interstate in my TJ and it feels pretty stable. I just don't like to push it that hard, but I have a lead foot and can't stand to go slow on the interstate. I do miss, from time to time, not having a sports car any more because speed is fun.

Of couse a death wish is doing over 100 on a crotch rocket. One ride was enough for me.

I am with you on this one. When i first got my TJ i felt like i made a big mistake with buying a off road vehicle and not another sports car. To be honest i still miss the glued, sitting on the ground, no wind pull/push feel. I drove a dropped Mazda Miata - the top of the roof was lower height than my stock TJs hood level right by the grill.

I live in the Rheinland. Near Homburg, instead of Hamburg.

i talk about mph. every stock european TJ goes 112 mph (180 kmh).

the twin turbo in his bowler wildcat needs about 35 liters on 100 kilometers.


the politicians sometimes talk about a 130 kmh (80 mph) speed limit on all highways. but that are all some stupid plans from environmentalists. i hope that this will never come here in germany.
i like driving very fast and want to do that also in the future.
