BB I used to drive an old mini countryman and they were even smaller than the new ones! But since all the other cars are bigger now as well I imagine it feels just as insecure sometimes.
Not my car but you get the idea.

I got stuck behind this fast moving vehicle near my place on Saturday, had my GRD3 to hand as usual.

I know how this feels. When we lived in Munich there were plenty of sections of the nearby A-bahns that had no limit. coming from the UK it was really disconcerting. When you check your mirror in the UK the guy coming up behind you is doing 70-8- MPH - maybe a little more - but the guy on an A-bahn doing 120-130 in his Porsche/M-B/BMW is terrifying. You instinctively judge how much time you have before the guy doing 70-80 is going to be alongside you, but it's impossible to judge the guy doing 120. I never got used to trying to judge how safe it was to overtake on the A-bahns where there was no limit.Our small residential street is limited to 30 Km/h = 20 mph. Most city roads are 50 km/h = 30 mph. And the Autobahn 5 minutes drive away is 100 km/h = 65 mph because it's near a major intersection. Further south, beyond the intersection, it has no limit. You can drive at (say) 200 km/h = 125 mph, but watch your rear mirrors: a Porsche may be coming up at over 250 km/h = 155 mph ...
heheahhhh, that's the same in offshore power boat racing:
Person A: navigator and helmsman
Person B: the throttleman
....and I can easily see some charcoal on your lens or sensor????? ;-)
