I did a seminar in Hamburg once and stayed overnight.  The next day I
dropped by the office before leaving for Frankfurt and discovered an
emergency - a part was needed in Munich and air freight was out for some
reason.  It wasn't my job, but the customer was 'down'.  I had an Audi
100 auto non-turbo.  I basically redlined it all the way - about six
hours?  Then I took a _long_ break and drove back up to Frankfurt.

The I5 is built for it - Germans do it _ALL_ the time.  At least, they
_did_, before the Greens and congestion took their toll.
