We all have different tastes. I don't like the black rims. I think the stock chrome rims look the best. I don't have a problem with the stock antenna, but many think it needs to be short.

I also had my local upholstery shop pad the center console cover. It was really hard resting my elbow on it before.
I like it!

I saw a report on TV here in Florida about this section of the road you drove. They said its really not that long of a stretch to drive, just across a town that permits that speed. Not all over Texas as most people think..

TX130 has an 85mph limit for about 40 miles, and an 80mph limit for an additional 40 miles. There are more 80 mph limits on remote interstates in west Texas.

Interstate 80 across Wyoming is 80 mph which means driving at 86 with the cruise control engaged. Going north out of Ogden the SL is 75 which means 82 mph.

Much of Idaho is also ~80 mph. Then you get to OreGaN. A great place to be FROM.

You must be one of those people who stretch the speed limit no matter how high it is.

85 means 85 in TX. I saw several people stopped by the State Troopers. Really? 85 isn't fast enough?

No

According to the specifications for interstate freeways, the minimum design speed is 75 MPH in rural areas. In much of the west, where the roads go for tens of miles or more without a significant elevation change or any curvature, safe speeds are determined by traffic, weather, lighting and the characteristics of the vehicle and experience of the driver.

I quote
Traffic zooms by on the German autobahn at 120 mph. The speed-limitless highway system stretches 6,800 miles and the Federal Ministry of Transport has declared the autobahn to be one of the safest road systems in the world despite the roaring, high speeds. US highways, on the other hand, rank as one of the most dangerous where speed limits range from 55 to 75 mph. Strict laws are believed to be the prominent reason the autobahn is safer than US highways.

I am perfectly comfortable driving at speeds in excess of 80 or 80 MPH in the right car, under the right conditions.

When your destination is 1500 miles ahead of you, traveling at the most efficient speed is a good thing.

They are also much stricter than we are regarding the condition of the vehicle. Most people here never even bother to check the air pressure in their tyres, for example.

Easy for you to say.. you don't have a turbo!

FWIW... I would swear the "normal" cruising speed on all South Carolina interstates was 80.. people fly!! I can't drive 75-80 in our 70 MPH zones without people feeling the need to floor it past me.
