    Speed Limiter? CDTI

    Ive noticed that at 140mph on the speedo there seems to be some sort of limiter because when the car reaches the 140 mark it seems to lose reves all of a suddon like its bounced off a limiter? Anyone else noticed this? Obviously this happened on a germen autobahn!

    Yep, the CDTi engine is limited, Astra/Zafira etc. 4000rpm in 6th gear and it won't let you go any further!!

    It's actually about 130mph in real life speed.

    You can remove it by having a remap but then they will put in other safeguards such as water temperature/Oil pressure etc
