Default whooooweeee (I think I maxed out my car)

ok, just set a new personal best in the land speed record department. I had it in fifth all the way, going on a gentle downhill and then back up a gentle hill, on a local Interstate. I only had to pass one big rig, at the begining of the run, and there was a beefy guardrail in the median. Also, temp was around 53, and I had been doin' 65 on the interstate for about 5 miles, so the intercoolers were chilled, ready to serve.
Holy cow this thing pulls HARD in fifth around 120 or so. I was transfixed for a brief moment on how fast the needle was making that sweet clockwise motion. It seemed like I picked up 10mph in like three seconds. Wow. Once I hit the 140s it tapered off, and I hit what I thought was 143, but again I wasn't looking all that closely, and I don't think I hit the speed limiter. What's it feel like? I didn't shift to 6th, and road was running out, so I just backed off. What a great rush. I loved it. Just had to share.

Unlike the VW, where it feels like somebody yanked the chute cord

Default The speed limiter (and rev limiter) are pretty "soft" on the S4...

btw, 5th will take you to an indicated 153+ (at least it did for me ;-)

Default Ouch last time I did that the harness wasn't on tight enough...

I couldn't walk right for two weeks.

Yanked the chute cord that is, not hit a VW rev limiter.
