      That motor seems to be seriously underrated as it's quicker than the M550d

      It is actually pretty cool. And as you adjust the speed up or down, the little lights "walk" around the dial to the new speed. Dorky, but it's a nice touch, and does look really neat.

      That can't be stock. Just an ECU upgrade or more?

      Makes me want a Touareg TDI even more.

      Well, it goes over 155MPH (250kph), so it's got to be chipped right?

      It is quicker than a 997 Carrera S Cab.

      It certainly shoots forward once both turbos spool.

      With the (intentional) speedometer error, I've found they usually hit the 250 kph limter around 260-266 kph indicated.

      My German may be lacking, but I believe that article says "Ladedruck 3,0 bar", meaning 3 bar boost pressure. Meaning this thing is pushing 44 psi boost. That seem like a typo to you guys?
      Jack of all trades.

      Germans typically quote in absolute pressure, not gauge. Subtract 14.5 psi.

      That's still 30 psi which ain't too shabby.

      Is there anything about German cars you don't know?

      Also depends on altitude and the weather that day, may be even less than 30 really.

      So awesome, but i'm guessing we'll never see this in the USA, right?
