That makes sense. I let Google track me all the time which is why I never had a problem.

Regarding #5.

When I'm above 180 kph (>110 mph), I normally stay in the middle on a 3 lane stretch because staying in the right most lane feels very dangerous. I've had enough people pull out in...

Uh, no. It split the high beam when a car appeared in front of me. (I forgot to add I was in Germany... which is probably the source of the confusion.)

I had a 420d rental that had the anti-glare high beam (Xenon bulbs of course), and it was very helpful when hitting 210 kph (130 mph) late at night.

I use t-mobile. However, before that I would buy a SIM from a vending machine at FRA. I'm sure that same vending machine exists in MUC.

The ED part sounds pretty good.

How about taking a night train from Munich instead of flying? There is one that goes direct to Rome (no connections) but I don't think it runs daily.

I drove that stretch coming back from Berchtesgaden to Munich 10 at night in a 420d m sport.

Let's just say I didn't hit the top speed not because the car couldn't but because I enjoy living.

I wouldn't tip. I don't cash tip limo drivers in the US because it's baked into the bill (unless I have a good run in Vegas).

Spotted an i8 in the wild

They're in front of an advertising firm in Santa Monica, so I'm assuming they're getting ready for a photo shoot.

Never noticed engine braking? That's the first thing I noticed when I test drove my car.

Anyway, heavy steering is a common complaint in the E9x but absolutely normal.
