i have a 100k policy. Well its a life insurance/retirement thing. As in i have 100k life insurance but the extra money gets put into a kind of retirement fund with investments and stuff. According to the insurance guy, a friend of my dad, my projection is at 65 i will be able to start taking out 20-24k per year from my fund. Which the way social security is almost gone as it is in 40 years an extra 20k per year couldnt hurt.

But then again i have no one so it just goes to my moms if i die now.

That being said im stage 2 and the fastest ive been is 127 indicated. I dont really have the need for speed anymore. I like spirited driving but i dont see the point for me to be freight training along anymore.

I almost invested in a similar policy. Decided to invest in bitcoin instead. Boy was I glad I made that decision haha

You guys should consider a 1/2 mile roll racing event. wanngofast does them several times a year, it's a good time, and you'd be surprised the kind of cars that come..not everyone brings a UGR Lambo/GTR.

I honestly don't think I've ever had my mk6 above 100 mph. If I did it's only been once.
I took my mk4 up to 120 plenty of times though, and in places I definitely should have been. Pretty sure I hit 140 in that car before too.

Same. I think the fastest I've gone in this Gti is around 120/130 but that was only a handful of times. I don't feel the need for going that fast anymore either. I rarely go over 80 now unless I'm doing a run with someone (which is rare).

Constantly driving like an ass hat and going in excess of 80 is just asking for a reckless driving charge... its just a matter of WHEN, not if. I've had my fair share of those growing up.

But back in the day I hit 150/160 in my mk4 Vr6 2.8L VF supercharged gti with 2 others in the car with me.... and in my Mk4 R32 I hit 160+ with 3 others in the car with me. Speedo only went up to 160 but I still had gear left in 6th... anddddd thats how I totaled my R32. Already flew past my exit once that night and had already turned around and was about to speed by it again when I decided I'd just take the exit ramp going fast.... yea well the exit ramp was very sharp and I made friends with the guard rail allll the way down. If that guard rail wasn't there... we probably all would have died.

Lesson learned the hard way; just glad everyone was alright. And boy do I wish I still had that Mk4 R32... it would be turbo'ed by now....

I consistently do 140-155mph. I have a really long drive to work and most of the time no one is on the road, early morning. I've ended fifth gear a lot and go into sixth for another 15 seconds. The car runs out of steam at 148mph but will go passed 150mph given a little more road. Fourth gear ends right at 116mph and I do that a few times a week.

probably due to your tires groves and compound.
A high quality tire will be quieter with higher speed in comparison to a economy tire.

I also once easily got 166mph (gps) in my mk4 R32 and it had loads left, totally factory setup too! Excellent engine that V6.

Iíve had just over 140mph from my current MK6 gti too on the same stretch of road (closed of course), also factory standard, it did have a bit left but nothing like the R32 did.
