Following on from the recent poll 'how fast have you been in your golf?' I have begun to question why I can't seem to get above 120mph from my PD 130? I do have Audi S3 17" but surely this wouldn't knock off 10-20mph top end would it?

0-120 she pulls like a train but after that its like being a kid with my go-kart again - looking for a downward slope with the wind in my favour [:eek:)]

I'm gonna check the data sticker once the g/f bring's it home. Its making me wonder if I actually do own a PD130!

Or are all these 120+ claims only possible with a re-map?

ive had 125mphout of a revo'd 130. it was still pulling but i ran out of runway, the tdi engines lose all there good torque cos the gearing wont keep the revs down.

Umm - still baffelled as to how you people are seeing those figures! I struggle to get 120, anything after that is a push. Might it be because I only have 16k on the clock - does it need time to loosen up [?]

does your car have a wire cable throttle or electronic drive-by-wire?

might be the cable is a little loose so your not getting full throttle

According to "Road Angel" i've had 130 out of my 130 PD totally standard engine.

I can only assume she's still tight. Give her time she'll loosen up [;)]

All TDI and PD diesels are DBW. I've seen 130mph and rising in a standard PD130 (loan car) on 15" Avus IIs.

My own remapped 110 TDI took a long stretch of clear autobahn to see an indicated 130 - she will do no more. 125 is more the norm on a good day running 17s.

he says it pulls like a horse up till 130mph then it feels like its fighting that whole aerodynamics thing and it redlines to fast to get any further.

MOOwwhahaha
