So VW says. It's actually less than that.

It is widely published that the governor for the 2.0T cars is 129mph...
It seems that most of GTIs fall between 122-125 mph.

Post the data to support your claim. I have looked tonight online and its not readily available. I found the Euro data quite easily. My car is exactly as zakmak posted. I had my foot to the floor 195/197kmph. Not 1mph/km more would it do lol!

I've done several top speed tests on the Autobahn using two GPS devices, before and after the APR tune. When the car was stock, top speed was 125 mph/201 kmh (121 mph/195 kmh @ speedometer -yes, my GTI reads lower than its actual speed-).
After APR Stage-1, I achieved 162 mph/260 kmh going downhill (real speed). Top speed on a perfectly flat road is 155 mph/250 kmh.
