Is it ok to do 130 and then use stop/start?

I like to save gas, but is this bad for the car?

Why only 130 when the car is capable of higher speed?

I also want to point out that start stop is also efficacious for certain types of urinary incontinence. Just an fyi.

Additionally, going over 130 mph on public roads risks exacerbating incontinence especially with passengers.

Better yet, hit top speed then use stop start.

No it's bad for the car because it damages the flux capacitor

Is this question for real? If you are even considering this, you shouldn't even own an M.

If I had a flux capacitor I would probably go back in time and not post this thread. I didn't know 130 was too fast. I've only gone that fast 1 time.

How fast am I allowed to go then?

I think there are signs posted that indicate what the top speed is for that particular street/road.
