I go to court with no lawyer and man up. judge asked me where I was goin so fast. Told him I seen the open road so I opened it up a bit and he laughed. Got the reckless dropped and the 100 in a 50 got dropped to a 80 in a 50. Grad total of 4 points and $400. guess I won


For those who say don't drive that fast and other the bs dont be hypocritical. I'm sure you didn't buy this kind of car to drive around like a Prius owner. I don't drive like this all time.
LOL I got a similar story. was coming back from concert in NYC and the second I crossed the state border into Mass apparently a state trooper was following me for 10 miles as I continued my driving at 100+ miles give or take if there was turn or a car in front of me. Long story short he got me for excessive window tinting, no front license plate and the speeding which he wrote down was 110+ in a 65. Lucky your stuff got reduced, judge made me pay. Nonetheless I take this all as a good laugh and memories in the end.

You could have actually been arrested at that speed and your car impounded, so I guess you did "win".

Where in NJ was this. There are some towns here that would've ruined your life for a stunt like that. Lol

OK, so it seems to me that the cop was hiding behind the bridge, or under it. I'm guessing he got you with radar?

This is the one thing that a good radar detector is perfect for: Driving at night on near deserted roads.

The only time I really open up my car is at night, no one around me on the road, and no bridges or other places a patrol car could hide. AND total quiet from the Valentine One.

Any of the above conditions are not met, I slow down.

So far, with the 335i, I haven't had a chance. And only brief spurts in the E39 528i.

The days of us being able to do this in the U.S. are numbered. With the way things are going, our huge government always reaching for more power, more surveillance, less privacy, more control and the public too distracted to notice. It's just a matter of time before the party is over.

To those who think this is no big deal I ask you to think of one thing. Imagine you are "pushing" your car and you don't see the minivan with the family on the road ahead of you. As you lose control trying to avoid it you slam into the van and the next thing you see is A 9 YEAR OLD GIRLS HEAD SMASH OPEN ON YOUR WINDSHIELD!!!

Perhaps "having a little fun" isn't worth the potential price...

Yea, his speeds were exaggerated. However, why do you have a 335 if you don't care about testing your car out a bit? For that you should of gotten a 328 like myself. I'm a scaredy cat. Lol.. And this car still constantly gets away from me.

I have a 335 as I enjoy having the power it offers. Power does not equate to top speed by the way. One thing power does afford you, however, is options in certain situations. For example, when the car next to you starts to lose control in the rain. I have the ability to put my foot down and get by them before they completely lose it and run me off the road. Now that is not to say that I don't like to "play" on the rare occasion. I just keep it within reason.

Any idiot can take a car up to 100+ speeds. The point is that you need to recognize what you are risking (both to yourself and to those around you) when you decide to be foolish. I am fully confident in my abilities (and aware of my limitations) behind the wheel. What I am not as confident in is what I do not have control or cognizance of. At 130 mph a blown tire will render your car damn near uncontrollable.

How do you know that there isn't a hazard in the road ahead?
How do you know that that family isn't making their way home in the minivan?
How do you know the car ahead isn't being operated by a drunk who will make a totally unexpected maneuver?

In America we do not require NEAR the amount of training and testing that they do in Germany or any other country where they have very high or no speed limits. The autobahn's are there because in order to operate a car on them you are required to go through what amounts to racing school. Here all you need is to have 20/40 vision and the ability to memorize the answers to some very simple questions plus pass an insanely easy driving test. Add to that nobody is required to be recertified once they have passed. I can't tell you how many times I see people driving with two feet (ie braking continuously) or mistaking the gas for the brake. Remember, these are the same folks you are trying to pass at 130. I wouldn't trust them with a potato peeler let alone not doing something stupid when I drive past them.

Be careful driving at that speed. A small mistake could be fatal.

Obviously the material fine is not important. However, I hope you do realize that you risked your life and the life of others on the public road. One small bump could have caused your death. We do not have autobahns and the roads are crap, therefore it is simple stupidity to do this considering the uncontrolled environment and shitty roads.

Next time when you want to do this go to HPDE and have fun. The cost is the same and you will enjoy driving on smooth surface in a controlled environment.

GL and be responsible!!
