Do the Kerma or Malone tunes take off that pesky 210km/hr Vmax on VW TDI's?

There are just too many to list....
Just note that if you exceed that, you'll want to make sure the tires on the car are rated to go that fast. The H rated tires are why the 130 mph/210 kph limit is on the car in the first place.

I have seen the carnage to an H rated tire that came apart at about 145 mph... it wasn't pretty, and the driver is lucky to be alive.

V rated tires are good to 149 mph/240 kph.

I realized that, so can you reprogram the car with VW tools for v rated tires and change the limit that way? Have Z rated tires so no problem there.

^^^ what he said.

"upon request" of course does not preclude some pushback and pre-qualification, but the technical capability is no problem
