Indicate the year of manufacture, model and top speed achieved in your M-Class, and circumstances of your high speed run.

2003 ML350 Inspiration Edition; 113 mph indicated on my StreetPilot III GPS (speedo indicated about 118); I-35 on an early Saturday morning run to the office. Slowed because reached exit, but left some on the table. StreetPilot will capture and hold your highest speed until it is exceeded or erased. Disappointed in substantial (1.5 to 5 mph) difference between speedo and GPS. Wonder which one is correct, but give benefit of doubt to GPS.

you are a braver man than i. there is just something that doesn't sit right with me about going that fast with such a high center of gravity. i've witnessed ML55's at the mercedes ontrack outing getting flogged something furious by race car drivers and handling it, i just don't see me doing that. if i'm not mistaken, the 55's will hit the 155 limiter, but the fastest trap speed i know of is in the 130's.
