Mein Auto: 2011 335 and 2013 535
A lot of the speed "disassociation" comparing new to old vehicles is simply that these new cars are so much more insulated, disconnected and quiet compared to the previous generations. I have noticed taking some offramps at a greater speed in the 535 than I do in my 330 and not even noticing it until the 85 mph warning I set starts chiming. It all goes back to the "more fun to drive a slow car fast" axiom where you feel the speed more in the older car.
