It might be helpful to know what you're driving.

Most likely, you'll need a chiptune to get past that mark.

140hp or 170? I can't imagine it'd have much more in it to go much higher with out mods, torque can only get you so far.

The 2.0CR mkv sedan's were drag limited to the 126ish mph range.

According to Car and Driver the 1.8T 2011 sedan is drag limited to 118mph. I wouldn't be surprised given the known differences between the 1.8T and the 2.0CR if the 2012 was drag limited to a speed of somewhere between 125-130.

Meaning the only way to go faster is by performance mods.

Fast is only part of it. I love the German roads - and the German drivers. I know there will always be bad apples but my two weeks driving around Germany I felt comfortable with the other drivers around me driving fast. There were a couple odd instances but I can count on both hands the number of dumb things just on my 3 mile drive to work.
