it's an audi A4 2.0FSi, and the 130mph was on the A3 in surrey - quite a good road for it as visibility is excellent, ie see it's clear, and nail the throttle. found out today the same thing happens in my friend's Honda CRX too. The Audi's speedo is electronically crontrolled, while the CRX's is cable driven.
