does anyone know? reason being, i've recently got one and when i first got it my dad was adamant that i should take it to his mates garage for "check over".....my dads always been paranoid about me with cars cus he knows i like to go fast and so far i can only get 107mph out of it!....is that right? or do you think i'm heading on the right lines with my dad pulling one over on me?

let me know your thoughts guys before i confront the ***...

cheers

i've had about the same! its meant to do 121 i think! it was slowly getting faster but the private road ran out [;)]

you may find you have a dodgy MAF! symptons are it wont pull at all over 3k rpm and it feels like u are hitting a wall!

my 110 seems fine, but im gonna go for an upsolute i think, as they recommend to change a MAF change when you get the remap..

Upsolute is probally the best upgrade for your ???

you can get a Merc MAF Sensor, they are cheaper to replace, think around ?60..

http://www.upsolute.com

upsolute is a remap, which can remap your gt tdi to 143bhp give or take, so you would see around a 25/30% in ratio increase in performance, and with the new MAF, should be laughing.

i had 129 in Amars GT TDi 110 and she was asking for more but i had to back up as 2 S3s were braking hard infront of me!!!

sounds defo like a MAF problem

PM Amar (or me if u cant get in touch with him) and he will "sort it" for you

Was probably averaging 50 before the "run" [:)]

As for the temps, think there was quite a bit of snow around at the time...
