RE: 130mph

Not sure if you ever got an answer to this. Sales guy told me that the
91's are NOT speed limited. That began in 92. My owners manual says that
"The tires shipped with this automobile are rated for less than what
Audi considers to be the top speed. Do Not Excede 130 mph. " Nothing on
my wood trim - but an extra warning in the owners leather pouch.  I was
in Montana last week - driving a pickup and camper at 60mph (boring).
Traffic was moving around 80 - saw a 200q around Missoula  hitting
around 90. Made me envious!!
