Not much more I think, with mine I got up to 90, thats more than enough:eek::eek:
I had about another 500rpm before I got to the red line. Keep it slow and keep the licence;)

You say you have a rocket and are currently only getting around 90 mph out of it. I just checked wikipedia and speeds of 10,000 mph are possible in space. I:

On the way back from picking my van up I managed to find a private stretch of road and got an indicated 109 on the clock. I reckon it would have made another 5-6mph but I backed off due to cars appearing on my private road. 2.5 TDi

i think that you should be paid more money so you can get a T5 and you all do a wonder full job and not paid enough for the ?hit you have to put up with T:T:

Just to throw something in the pot...

Running 18" wheels with 235/40/18 so by calculation, tad over original wheel circ.

At motorway speeds, TomTom gives a difference of about 5 mph slower ????????

Would have thought that GPS was the more accurate but why the big difference?

Any thoughts? :confused:

If dials are out, Your all being fooled with your top speeds. (A trick by VW maybe!) LOL:

Tigger, none standard wheels and tyres will change your speedo reading;)

Check this out http://alloywheels.com/tyrecalc.asp#

If my speedo says I'm doing 80 my Tomtom says I'm doing 75. Thats with standard size tyres. Speedos should read that you are going faster than you really are. One way of getting no points;)

Phew..... not just my van then. ;)
Would have expected maybe 2 mph but 5 :eek:
May be to do with some vans running 195's and others 205's as standard. (VW covering all bases as it were.I:)

Merry Monk

Every car/van I have tried the Tomtom on has shown at 80 (on the speedo) it's a real speed of around 75ish ;) All with standard size wheels/tyres;)
I hope that helps, but if you go through a speed trap and get points don't quote meLOL:LOL:LOL:LOL:
