For what is is worth.
I just got back from Europe. I traveled the Italian autostrada, the British Motorways and the French motorways. I spent time in Rome Paris and London. That said, I saw NO 5series V8's most of the cars were 520's and 518's. The Fiver seems tp be the car of choice along with the E class for all but the exceptionally wealthy.
On ALL of the major highways the smaller fivers were more than capable of speeds that we would not even think of driving here. Perhaps we wre frustrated because our limits are so low so we do all we can to get to the limit as quickly as we can. "Speed limit's 70 got to get there quick."
Having had that experience, I feel more than secure with my 525iA.
: 9.0 seconds. It doesn,t feel thaT SLOW
