I routinely am able to enter the expressway (motorway, for our European
listers) at the end of the ramp at 80Mph - Or at least the maximum posted
speed limit... (OK Keith?), which is a really nice feeling. I cannot do this
in my wife's '98 A6 Avant (don't know how this relates to the 200Q20V). Blew
the doors off several kiddie racers over the past few weeks... much to their
amazement! (Some "old" guy in a big luxury sedan... (37yo)).

I get 22 - 23 Hwy, 16 - 18 City, pretty consistently.
