    At the end of the day it does 130mph on paper standard so it will do slightly more in the real world, i have an extra 50bhp and like twice the torque, all i have gained is 15 mph top end with all that extra power and torque. You may all believe what you like but if there is anyone on here with a standard A3 1.9tdi i suggest you go to and get it remapped and prove some of this lot wrong.

    That is all....

    It's not about wether we have taken our cars to the Max bud, but to bragg about it, and provide photographic evidence is a bit silly really.

    I believe ya! Just i think your being a little over enthusiastic, but for sure a remapped diesel are certainly pretty quick and if i can accelerate as quick as a WRX300 then that'll do me fine! so im sure that a standard S3 would have big trouble trying to pull away! A remapped S3 may be a different story Joe you up for a challenge lol

    You do realise that your speedo is prob 15-20mph out at that speed. i.e u were probably doing 130, still a bit stupid on a uk motorway, i might also suggest that you remove your picture as i happen to know a few policemen that visit this forum.

    I second that. Do a GPS run and you'll see how far out they get the faster you go. Even at 60/70 your speedo is a few mph out, so at "that" speed you'll be way out.

    Definately, according to my sat nav when my car indicates 120 its actually travelling at 107mph. and indicating 70 is actually about 67.

    Strange my speedo and gps are not that far out at 120mph on speedo the gps reads 112.
    Mind you I have changed my wheels to 18" from 17" so guess that must have made some difference.

    as for oil burners there ok....

    It probably varies by car, i think theres a 10% tolerance level, so mine is probably more out than it should be but i guess tbe 18" wheels could be making the difference there

    My S3 showed 159mph speedo and 150gps. took forever to get to 150gps, was stuck at 149 for ages!
    This was all fully legal on a derestricted autobahn when I was in German a few weeks back.
    You're showing 145mph there, speedo, which is proabably only 135-138 on a gps. About what you'd expect from 180hp diesel.
    You are a total twonk to do it and post it on here! Best hope Barryboys dont get hold of it!! They'll mince you up good!

    The lengths some people will go to. This is an internet forum where differences of opinion are part of the deal. You seem to have got really wound up about that last post of yours, to the extent that you risk your life, that of your passengers (please tell me you didn't take that photo yourself ... you did didn't you?!) and other road users to make yourself feel better.

    I think you have an inferiority complex about your car not being an S3.

    I keep seeing more and more people have visits from the police after posting stuff like this on the internet so you may want to be a bit more careful.

    The fact that you wrote, this was me doing 150mph in my car, here's a photo is plenty for the police matey.

    I dont really give to ****s whether you keep or remove it but it would be far more clever to be careful.

    Then again if you were clever you wouldnt drive at an indicated 150 and take a photo with your camera phone at the same time.

    We did all this a little while ago in another thread:

    "From Audi Driver Mag
    TDi 110, 27.5mph/1000rpm in top
    TDi 130 Q, 30.8 mph/1000rpm in top....

    Quoted top speed for these are 121/126 mph"

    So 4k rpm = 4x30.8 = 123.2mph

    There was a suggestion that a Front wd 130Tdi final ratio was "approx" 35mph/1000 rpm

    So 4 x 35 = 140 mph...

    Take your pick...

    And well done for the photo. Good quality at that speed with one hand on the wheel....
    Coming back to Audi with an A3 Tdi Sportback Quattro... but the 220bhp T5 was epic....

    Jesus im 18 and even i think this thread is ridiculous theres no way your diesel does 150+ Mph it just aint gonna happen get in the real world!

    My 1.8T on the SPEEDO said 150 when i had 1 flat run, i didnt go posting pictures look how good i am etc. But i know for a fact the 150 i saw on my SPEEDO wasnt a true reading,

    And as regards the Mapped TDI being quicker than an S3 thats just nonsense perhaps from a standstill maybe the diesel would have a chance with the extra torque etc but it'll soon run out of puff and get eaten by the S3.

    Get in the real world stop dreaming!

    can i ask a question mark, what size wheels do you have on ur diesel?

    ive still got the standard 16" t sport alloys on my car and ive got mine to do 142mph (legally ofcourse) and that was on a good day. im running at 180bhp at the moment with a few faults but if your wheels are bigger than standard this will give a dodgy read out on your speedo. i believe its about 6% correction to every inch bigger on the wheels or thereabouts.

    for example: if your speedo says your doin 100mph with 16" wheels, with 18" wheels your really probly doing about 88mph.

    Who in their right mind is going to take their S3 [read: Pride and Joy] to race this f*ck1n retard when he will most likely be attempting to do 240mph (it'll do it y'know...honest) non-handed down the wrong side of the road whilst leaning out of the window trying to take a picture of himself and his licence plate to 'prove' how amazing his car is.....
