Anyone taken their SQ onto a private road/airfield for a blast?
Thoughts? the car feels very nervous/figity as you hit 100/110, not sure i'd like to take it much beyond that - private road or not.

Tyres were all correctly inflated about 3 weeks ago - not checked since.
Car was fully loaded with people and cases at the time.

Have you had the Geo looked at Snowman?
My experience with the S3 and TTRS suggests there is plenty of deviation from recommended settings when cars roll out of the factory...

Held mine at 135-140mph for a time (private road of course). Was sold as a rock...

155mph/250kph - so not sure how that video got to 270, VCDS can remove the limit easily...
Plus lots of these 'limits' are known not to be that limiting!

Your right Jose, went past 160 mph so no limiter on mine and absolutely rock steady and hardly any body lean at the T-Junction either

Maybe I'm use to sporty cars, this does not feel rock solid at all.
its like riding a speedboat going over waves - all over the place.

speedo design is freaky too, firstly its backwards and the numbers spacing get smaller as the speed increases.

Feels no different to my 135i at similar speeds... You are comparing to an R8 though so it may be a perceptual thing...

I like the speedo as at low speed it is higher resolution, so you can see 31mph compared to 30 clearly - also means 80mph is central so easy to see at motorway speeds.

155mph on Autobahn with my sq5. Rock solid! And as a comparison I had a porsche 991 Carrera S before which should be considered as a quite stable car at high speeds

Snowman - get your car checked!
