I agree with Pottsy, but minus the wink, the rate of acceleration when joining from a slip road is of little consequence, providing your speed is matching those on the first lane and you have picked your spot to join, you just accelerate more or less to get to the spot you have got in your mind.
The best thing with the speedo and the rate of acceleration (certainly with the 2.2 iCDTi) is to see how many numbers you can jump, away from the lights 3, 4, 10 , 17, 25. (These numbers are not based on any actual events, my memory is not that good, might have a better look later)
