230-240 is about 140mph init, I have hit that once or twice, and jeez you
are traveling then, I think the top speed of the 1.8T Q is 141.
I find the Audi at speeds of 100mph actually very nice to drive,
I've had mine (2001 1.9TDi 130) up to an indicated 140mph a couple of
times, once on the M62 coming down off the Pennines, and again on the
M40 late one night coming back from London, there's a long descent as
you come down from the Chilterns. That's its top whack though, the revs
were sitting just below redline at that speed.
Sadly mine doesn't have the 6-speed option fitted, otherwise it might
have gone just a little faster.
When on the motorway I tend to just let the car find the speed it wants
to travel at. With my A4 it's around 110-120mph, which is very
comfortable. Keeping it below 100mph is actually quite hard work!
