    re:

    about 90 mph i think...no matter how hard i try it wont go over this speed even if i downshift it in 4th gear then go to about 5 and half thousand revz and then change still wont go past 4000 revz in 5th

    if youo hold it in 4th the car should be able to hit at least 90, hold the revs a little longer and see if the car will go over it.

    If not its hardly a major problem that it wont go over 90mph, more of a benefit!

    does it go over 90 in 4th? is your car an import? have you ever had it over 4k rpm in 5th? if not it could be restricted maybe?

    Its a 1.6! 112 is not that limited!! lol

    Sounds like some form of limp mode. Does it rev to the limiter in any gears....?

    Will the car rev to 6.5k in all other gears?

    sounds like a limiter try and find out where the car originated from, audi will be able to tell you.
