I understand the concept and functionality perfectly. Its only the statement above that appears to be incorrect to me! (in india)

Hey buddy,
really nice write up.
We have done 200kmph in my E and it could very well go faster but the car following would have a bad time keeping up.
As for driver pleasure, the E is so much fun to drive that its my favorite car to drive right now and i just love flooring it.
Oh and are you going to change from merc to the audi dealership o remain with merc?
Can you PM me the address of the Audi dealership so i can go check it out.
thanx

the E is more fun to drive then the C any day

Drifter
Point understood drifter, BUT, if you are cutting in so close to the vehicle you are overtaking to think that your tail would hit him, you are definitely not overtaking in the correct manner!
