Think speedo showed around 120 (so probably 110-115) then ran out of straight at Goodwood! ;)

Nice, I've gone from a new 2012 Golf GTI to a 2.00 JTS and it feels still very keen.

I've just at the weekend had roaring drive from London to the North Norfolk coast and back and although I didn't break speed limit, I couldn't imagine it running out of puff just over 100, the car has plenty of go at higher speeds and feels like their's more in her.

It's a late model JTS 2008 with 25k on the clock.

I've had 130 on the speedo on the 1.6. If you can't get that out of a JTS you really arn't trying hard enough.
