Just wondering, how fast have you made your little Up! go?

I have no problem getting mine up to the posted speed limit.

One would assume the M&M takes the speed from a GPS reading? In which case that will be likely more accturate than the speedo

Unless the calculation has been fixed to slow you down, the sat nav will be within a few % if that.

I did 105mph with the 60ps BMT (private road of course
). Still felt like there was more to it but didn't wanna labour a engine that had only done 2200 miles.

The Maps & More is more accurate as it works on GPS. The car manufacturers always build in a degree of "offset" so that the driver (doing the speed limit) can not be "done" for speeding and claim against them. Also, since I'm new to the Navigon navigation device I've been running my ever faithful Tom Tom Live alongside for comparison... They compare well.

Hehe these speeds are impressive for a little engine. Taking mine to Germany this year so will see ;) the mini I had wouldn't go past 125 when I did the same trip couple of years ago.
