Thinking about it now in the cold light of day with the car parked outside, it doesn't feel like I'm missing out on too much. My normal commute I know the speed limits and for those couple of times a week when I go off this beaten path the speed limits are all well signed. Besides, having a display tell me I can do 60 when you're crawling along in a traffic jam wouldn't help

I have no regrets and in the 3 months I've had the car I can't say I'd thought about it until this thread. I have no regrets, I could have added more but there's nothing I would consider necessary to me
