How much over the limit do you speed?
 
For scientific purposes.

Keeping it to freeways/highways, not much traffic if any, normal conditions?

I shoot for 80mph or a bit more on my speedo which works out to about 75mph in reality. If I'm having fun, I'll go up from that for a short bit, unless I know of a hotspot for chippies coming up...

This is without le wife or le bebe in the vehicle, in any of our cars, not just sports cars or bmws.

All of the way over.

So 195mph? That's about the tops for a well maintained E39 530 no?

5 over max anymore unless it’s a 75mph limit, then I do 75.

It's the limit in ideal conditions, which it rarely is. 10-15 under to be safe.

When cruising...10-15 over on highways and 5-10 everywhere that’s not 25

Typically 10 over. Police in Georgia don't really mess with you for 10 or less. Not sure if they can actually. Got to keep an eye out for state troopers though. They do what they want. Sometimes I'll cruise at 15 over depending on traffic and the limit. I don't really like cruising much above 80 mph. I do like to go just a bit quicker than the flow though.
