    I thought that this is mandatory on cars in the middle East. It should be possible to turn it of. I suppose your local dealer can fix it.

    What kind of car? I believe my 612 has some sort of speed warning buried the settings that you can turn on. I never messed with it, though.

    Funny, my parent's 1961 Buick Invicta had one of those that was adjustable in the days before cruise control. Drove the Turkish guy (in Turkey) who bought it crazy until Dad showed him how it worked.

    I once had my 612 OTO up to 145 mph and the only warning message I got was from my wife in the passenger seat! :D

    That was the problem with the FF with the passenger side speedometer!

    I was careful to only exceed 120 in my 612 when my wife was asleep... actually, in the 612 on european highways, it was so smooth and quiet that she never noticed the speed.

    Jan is pretty much immune to speed worries.

    My Kuwait delivered 612 doesn’t seem to have any speed warning. 599 might be slightly different but I suspect there would be at least an electronic setting for it that can be modified with a SD2/3.

    Your speedo calibration must be different than mine. My wife alarm goes off at anything over 90. I guess I should get a recalibration.

    Jan has been up to 120 knots (138 mph) in an F-111F with 50,000 lbs of afterburner thrust pushing her. Going fast in a car is no big deal compared to that.

    I have not had my Uk 599 for quite a few years now, but I am fairly sure you can turn it off or adjust to 190mph in the setting, mine used to go off at 140 as well, until I did something, just can't remember what.

    Grant- Do you have Angelo Wallace's translation of the Daytona WSM? I picked up my old copy last year. Still has a note from Angelo to me. Was thinking of scanning it for my Daytona buddies.

    Hi Terry
    Thanks for the offer, but I have 2 copies, one for me and one I lent to the guy restoring the car at the time.
    There is a hard bound copy around now as well, not the file with hole punched pages in, that it sounds like we both have, so its not worth your time to scan it really I would have thought.
    Your offer is much appreciated though.
    Thanks
    Grant

    If "recalibration" means a new wife, fuggedaboudit, keep her and live with it! :D

    Grant- Yup, it was going to be a chore. Had not heard about the hardbound copy, not that I need one.

    There is an adjustable speed warning setting in your TFT display. If you go into the settings you will be able to adjust it to whatever you desire. Let me know if you can't find it and I will look at it again in my car and give you a step by step.

    Alright, I'm out of town for the next week and a half. I'll take a video of me doing it in my car once I get home. Would be interesting to see if the steps are different in yours.

    I'm sure it's a repost, but this thread brings this Italian Speed Warning message to mind:

    Her reactions are priceless! Thanks for posting that, I had never seen it.

    Fortunately my wife was much calmer.
