I like how it turns off at 110 or so. Pulls pretty good once it has some revs going.

Gimmicky feature of the day right there! Thats awesome stuff.
Most euro cars have it for winter tires. My GTI has it, and I can set it up for lower speed rated winter tires incase i find myself going to fast on cold weather rubber...

Or if you find yourself going too fast it can be used as a little reminder

the 7 series are usually high 14 low 15 second cars. Very comparable to an SSEi.
