    And the only French Honda I've seen was a new Civic!

    Have to say though the Accord has gobbled the miles up and been faultless (so far lol).

    MPG dropped from mid 50's to high 40's but thats cause shes just been sat at 130kph for the last 350miles lol

    Seen another new Civic today and then I heard a very distinctive whine and an FR-V I-CTDI went past in traffic making the French Hondas total so far 3...

    Didn't I read somewhere that Germany is looking to introduce a 75mph limit on the currently unrestricted sections of autobahn?

    I am not 100% on this but think now most of autobahns are either restricted or recommended speed is 130 kph.

    TBH I like those unrestricted autobahns, there is no lane hogging like here in UK.

    ^^I've never driven in Germany, but have heard this from others. In this country I think the speed becomes more of an issue as lane discipline is so poor.

    no unfortunately not... although i would have loved to test it on the autobahn... which is where we went through on the way back... (Geneva-Zurich-Stuttgart-Luxembourg-Brussels - UK)

    I saw another Accord Tourer enroute to Zurich but couldn't snap it as it was my turn to drive

    BTW fuel is cheap in Luxembourg (€1,26 for Shell VPower diesel or €1,16 for regular diesel)
