C'mon guys, you should know better!
Using a car to calibrate the speedo in another car is poor form. Why assume the
S6 is at fault? Perhaps the speedo in the vehicle being used for comparison is
10mph off. More likely, both are off a bit, creating a 10mph difference between
the two. Do BOTH cars have stock wheels and tires? Try a ten mile run at 60 mph
on a highway with mile markers -- you should average 60 seconds per mile.
Andrew: Sorry your wife gets so upset about minimal overspeed -- she'd kill me!
Perhaps you should trade the S6 for a small 4 cylinder automatic... ;-)
