The only reason it pops up at 45 here in the US is because the NMSL used to
be 55mph and VW was afraid it would be difficult to sell a car with a nifty
feature that was designed to work only at extra-legal speeds.  As a result,
they redesigned the control circuit to make it pop up at 45mph versus 65mph
(I'm not certain of the exact figure) used on the euro-spec cars.  The same
is also true of the Porsche C4 or so I've been told.
