I was just a passenger, but it was very nice to be able to travel at 100-120 mph rather than the 65 mph limit the same kind of road would have in the U.S. Good lane use was just business as usual--get out of the left lane unless you have the hammer down.
The guys I was with were all from Belgium, where the speed limit is 120 kph, and apparently enforced. They noted that the fatality rate in speed-limited Belgium is higher than in unlimited Germany. Some hadn't been to the US and were amazed to learn that with a couple of exceptions we have 65-75 mph limits, and that people will drive 60 mph in the left lane and block traffic. And that passing on the right is OK in most places.
Some of the trips were in diesel Ford Mondeo wagons, which are pretty close to a 9-5 wagon. Not bad cars at all.
