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.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
