Malky, Vagcom is accurate to 0.3s though Im sure 3s was just a mistype.

I was getting anywhere between 5.9 and 6.2s 0-60 when using vagcom in the dryer months of last year.

I did manage to hit a 5.65s with a G-Tech performance meter.

Ahh yes, the wireless keyboard is running out of batteries!!

6.9 I got, with wheelspin.

Not convinced the G-tech times are all that accurate, almost .5 secs out I thought!

guys im managing 7.2sec, I havn't even had a re-map yet and that was with the 19s on.

How are you measuring your 0-60 times???

I'd be surprised to get 7.2secs without a rempa, I think 7.9 is about right without remap!

with a g-tech pro meter, that wasnt even a great start, im planning on doing it again without the 19s and when the roads aren't greasy.

When measuring using VAG COM, does this allow for tolerences, I assume this is taken from the same point as the speedo, and my speedo is out by up to 5mph measured using satalite tracking. Surly this would throw times out by more than 0.3secs.

Yeah it does,

The speedo on 1.8T's is accurate. The value that's sent to the speedo is tweaked by 5-10% up. This is to gurantee that the car allways reads the acyurate speed or above.

The speed in VAG-COm is the actual speed the ECU knows, which is as fairly accurate. You can check yourself using the climatronic speed readout.

the 0.3s time is relating to sample rates from the ECU - ie every 0.3s.

As Malky said on the rest.
