100 mph in my GT vs. 100 mph in my '08 535 Wagon - there's such a huge difference. I had to really project my voice to have a conversation at 100 in the '08. The GT is sooo much quieter - I don't have to belt out the words to be heard.

You'll have to take your car to Loudon for one of the BMW Club track sessions. Any idea how fast you can go there?
