That's how speed limits started - a guide not the absolute maximum. I have driven over 40 years now (and I enjoy driving) and have always treated speed limits as a guide meaning that I concentrate on my environment, will accelerate if I have to (past the posted speed limit) to get to a clear piece of road where I can slow down again and drive in relative safety away front trucks, buses and vans.
I think most people drive sensibly, nobody wants to die. However, most people are not skilled drivers - myself included - but improvements in road assets and car technology compensates for that.
On open road, I think we should learn to keep left, not let trucks and buses overtake on hills, mind our own business (not accelerate when being passes) and increase the speed limit to 120kmh (that will keep us away from slow traffic and stop tailgating by trucks and others). I also agree with the general sentiment of other comments

I currently drive 135 coupe. Have driven the new 335i. I agree with this review. Note however, you can option sport seats, that would address the "flat seats" issue. Another great performance car.

FWIW I had a Z4 for 6 years since new. No trouble. I also had a 325Ci for 7 years since new (concurrently some of the time), also no issues. Also had an A3 Sportsback, Quattro, 2.0T - for three years, no issues.
