in that every time you want to open it up and let her run there will inevitably be a dinosour SUV infront of you poking around at the speed limit!
Seriously I find it a little sad that I cannot really drive the car near its limits in this country with all the "Speed Kills" mentality. I do find it a struggle to keep it under 60 anytime, the car just feels dead to me under 60 mph.

The 4.4L power will spoil you, and the car is so quiet that you don't realize that you are going 95 in a 70. It is a love affair to be sure...
And if traffic in your area allows you to, get the 6 speed - true way to enjoy the 540.
