I'm not a fan of the Autobahn, actually. If there's no speed limit, then there may be vast differences in speed between the two lanes, making overtaking a truck rather dangerous. You could easily spend ten minutes waiting for an opportunity to overtake.
Also, there are many short stretches with different speed limits. So no speed limit, then two kilometers of 120, then a short stretch 100, and then back to no speed limit. I like driving with the cruise control on, and this type of weirdness makes that uncomfortable.
And there are many, many, many roadworks. Often multiple on the same Autobahn, with only 10 km in between. So you'd have no speed limit, and then everybody has to go back to 80 in order to pass a roadwork, then no speed limit for 20 km, and then back to 80 again for another roadworks.

It all makes for very irregular and uncomfortable driving. I'm happiest if I can just put my cruise control at 130 and coast along.
