      I agree with you that I need to make a point to exercise the engine from time to time. And yes, I had never taken the car beyond 3k, I find the low RPM torque shifting at 2k to be more than...

      Success, with the 93 octane after 40 miles the pinging or knock sound is gone above 4k, I will fill with 87 again the next time just to be sure. Also the car does seem to (maybe) have slightly higher...

      Unfortunately I don't know anyone with a OBD2 scanner, but if after testing the fuel then cleaner afterwards isn't successful, I might have to go shopping for one or perhaps have someone from the...

      I am going to fill with a tank of 93 at Wawa today to test, I would do Shell 93 but its quite out of the way for me. I haven't reached the low fuel indicator yet either (80 miles remaining) so I...

      Knock or pinging sound after 4k RPM?

      My normal driving habits are very conservative and geared towards fuel economy, shifting at around 2k is the norm, which has rewarded me with stellar fuel economy, especially on highway trips. Just...

      I think 112 mph is perfectly reasonable for the roads in NA, I can't tell you the last time I encountered a pack of cars running that speed, which is the only time I will risk it. That said 90+ is...

      Looks like someone put GM Dex-Cool in it, I would have them flush that crap out and put proper VAG G13 in thats made for the car.

      My understanding is that all 508.00 is supposed to be green as well, attached is my tissue sample along with a sample of new 508.00 Castrol Edge Professional from a bottle I have:

      I just took a sample from my dipstick (4500 miles in) using a tissue and its not green, are you positive about this?

      I wonder if the green color is difficult to see after it gets dirty? I might ask the dealer for a small sample of the old stuff after my next change.

      My service from early March at 20k had 42 units (100 ml each?) of G-E60-020-1B-DSP, my guess is the 1B stands for bulk compared to the 1Q or 1L for quarts or liters.

      I was curious as to what the true top speed was, sans limiter, if anyone has even done that yet.

      Top Speed?

      Anyone know the top speed of this car? A while back at the tail end of a extremely long road trip I decided to smash the pedal in 6th starting at around 75 mph (120 km/h) over a long smooth bridge in...

      I think the issue is the cooling system fan being underpowered, undersized, or could use 2 like my old Chevy Lumina had way back when. I also noticed the same lackluster performance after leaving...
