hrm... it works when I go... guess it's been too busy. some ford svt tech guy took a customer's car up to 140 and posted it. little did he know, the chick who owned posts on another board. He got fired. Serves him right. (link works... try again)

Looks like 'everyone' knows about it now. I don't worry too much I trust my mechanic besides who would be tempted to take a turbodiesel for a high speed run anway... hehehe

I've read about something like this (it was a Benz SL600), where the shop owner took it for a ride.. but I don't think he went 155mph..

I can't help but wonder about that scene in "Ferris Bueller's" day off where the parking lot attendants take the Ferarri out for a little "spin" immediately after the car is left at their disposal!

How many shop technicians do this on a regular basis?
