New Fast and only city driving

Okay guys, I bought my fast a little over 3 weeks ago. The first weekend I took it on a road trip over 300 miles away. Since then, I've only had a chance to drive it in town. It's driving me nuts. I only live about 4 miles from work. By the time I punch it, I'm already at work. Its a 35 zone the entire way and I'm finding it difficult to keep it under 45. I find myself at night staring at it, wanting to take it out for a spin. >:D

There are good things about having an hour and 45 min commute to and from work. O0
What, like idling for half the time and watching people's faces light up with car envy? I'll bet KUcub gets to "punch it" more than I do, and my 40 mins are all highway.
Why would it matter where you busted the speed cap? The service dep't would only be concerned that you did it, period.
While I sympathize, remember what a warranty is. When a company sells you a car, included is a warranty of merchantability and a warranty of fitness for a particular purpose. Essentially, it means the company is responsible for ensuring the car you bought performs as it should. However, in every contract I write (not automotive), I make sure that I only warrant to the extent the product is appropriately used.

If you aftermarket your car to rag it out, potentially causing or accelerating wear and tear, I can understand why the dealership would want to void the warranty.

FYI, this is the first time I've EVER taken the side of a dealership. I feel kind of dirty, and not in a good way.
