Driving to work in my new 2011 GTI. I noticed from the camera's viewing angle, it looks like I'm a lot closer to the cars in front of me than I really am. I'll find a new mount for my phone or my camera soon enough.
Not pushing it too hard right now, only have 2500 miles on it.
Plenty of vids to come. I plan on going stage 2 with CAI and downpipe in about a year or so.
Golf 6 GTI Autobahn A3 250+ km/h
Doing 250+ km/h on the A3 autobahn on a part known as the "Oberhausen
Straight". Funny because it isn't straight at all and a bit bumpy in some
bends too. 03:05 Birds on the road !!! I had to slow down to 230 kph ;-D
I used the GoPro HD Hero camera mounted on a headstrap.
Fuel consumption at high speed = unknown
Oil temperature = unknown
I will check both at my next high speed run.
On this run 285 bhp.
Volkswagen Golf GTi review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Volkswagen Golf GTI review http://bit.ly/wXlVpG
The VW Golf GTI combines strong performance, agile handling and precise
steering with impressive refinement and a supple ride. It's also practical
enough for everyday use and is very classy inside.
Some rivals are faster, the GTI is
expensive to buy and it doesn't look as striking as its cheaper in-house
rival, the Scirocco coupe.
