+1

One of the reasons many of us like the feel of German cars is that they have to be designed to cruise comfortably and maneuver at 90-100 mph. Otherwise they wouldn't sell in the homeland.

Ebrobb, Yes! I love to do this, only situation where I drive fast. I call this the "stalking horse" method.

I drive 90 miles out and back on the Pa Turnpike 3 times a week. Sometimes a BMW or a Porsche whizzes by, I tap on the (fuel) pedal, and hang a couple of hundred yards back. I enjoy the run until my stalking horse exits, or pulls over with flashing red lights behind him. Then I back down to my usual ~ 72. I find 90 is a sweet spot, turbo audible but not working hard, RPM ~ 2900, car feels solidly planted.

I'm gonna say on a stretch around +/-.75 miles long, and however long it took me to travel that distance... hahaha. I wasn't paying attention to time or distance, I was just seeing how far I could push it before having to puss out and slow down for the turn

167 on GPS in a MkIV R32 all motor. 192 on a RC51.

My B4 gets very nervous around 130mph it feels like it will top out at 140 but I just never had the chance to see it. Not much HP past 4200 in this thing even with a bunch of mods.

Not really answering anyone's questions, but I have hit 115 no prob when I was stock, have not found a place to try it since I have stage 1.5 Malone tune.

In my B5.5 Passat 1.8T 5MT, I hit 135 and it still had some steam in it. That was nerve wracking and stupid once I changed the tires and saw how low the old ones were. But the car definitely accelerates better past 110 or so than my TDIs have.

It took FOREVER for my old 1Z TDI to get to 115 lol.

167 would be maxing out 6th gear I believe in an mkiv r32. ive been in my friends former r32 and he ran it to 160 but there wasnt much left.

Good Teststretch is Highway 623 just off Highway 21 on the way to Miquelon Lake. Once you are over the RR Crossing you see about 10 km ahead a small church. County Cop likes to sit and wait for a payday. Since I drove that Road for years daily, I got my Speed fix on that road.....

My 2013 TDI, maxes out at 201 kph (126 mph) according to my Garmin GPS. It is limited in some way, as it feels like it would pull a few more kph if it was not limited.
