It must be so nice being able to take a proper drive down the German motorways. Very jealous! (honourable dutchy in Glasgow - spent a looong time in the netherlands!)
It's very nice to drive the Autobahn. :D
However driving at 200+ (fastest was 232 km/h) is very tiring.

I have to agree with that, have only done it on a motorcycle (@ 147 mph, 235 kph), the concentration was draining, the worst part was pulling in for fuel after that speed run and approaching the fuel pumps at 80+ mph 128 kph, and i thought i was going slow, :shock:
