Off the top of my head... Using the right hand side scroll wheel, navigate to the info screen. The one that shows temps etc. Click the scroll wheel to get to the menu. Go to settings>display>menu scope. From there you can select what screens will show when you scroll through the display. G-Force is one of them. When you are on the G-Force screen you can click to show the max readings and also reset.

Where is this scroll wheel you speak of?

For $20 you can download Harry Laptimer (Petrolhead Edition) and get G-forces via your phone.

Also, it has lots of other features that can be used for autocross or track days.

Actually, the Rookie Edition ($9) might do this too but I'm not sure.....I use Petrolhead Edition in my vintage race car.

Fast cruising speed on German Autobahns. Most performance German cars (apart from Porsche!) have 155mph limiters so it's a good speed to sit at.

I'm back in Germany next week. I still want to do a max speed run, but so far the conditions and traffic have not allowed.
Nice. How did it feel at 155?

As long as you don't have a side wind, and your alignment is dialled in it's very stable. You can literally set cruise control, chill and listen to the radio. I think over 150 will be more difficult for cruising as it will feel like you're sitting too high in the rev range and hammering the engine.

This is sad. Why do they purposely slow down their cars? While most people will never go that fast, knowing that you could do 180 or so makes the car feel special. Don't restrict them for no good reason.

Some sort of 'gentlemen's agreement' in Germany. 155mph=250kph. Mercedes, BMW and Audi have these limiters on most of their cars (except a few absolute top end cars). With no speed limits on the Autobahn it's maybe a safety thing to stop people going silly. Better that than the German law enforcing a max speed. Be glad Porsche didn't follow suit! ;)
