Pretty much ditto that for me.

I regularly have mine pulling 83 in first. That's as soon as the second red bar lights up on the tacho. Damn shame as the car sounds real tough at that speed with the exhaust singing its song. If I could rebuild it so it revs to 6000 then I'd be one happy camper.

My NC will do about 35-40 in first. It gets a bit annoying as you have to change to second in the middle of a roundabout and while turning at the lights ect.

My XF would push on to 120 but it would throw both fan belts doin' it.
My AU will pull about 85 just on the limiter.
