Exceeding meaning it consumes more because we calculate in Litres per Kilometer. Your consumption might also be okay because of your driving profile (rarely over 90mph).
Isn't the Golf R actually an FSI branded as TSI? I rarely get over 90 mph, but like to get on the throttle around town. My mileage improved slightly when I got it chipped. I'm at about 270 bhp and 300 ft/lbs of torque at the crank. Don't know the metric conversion to that off the top of my head.
