Great! Sounds like its steady as a church at speed. The flat six should be innately smooth with the opposed cyclinder config. I like that it was still pulling steady even at a buck fifty rather than getting anemic.

I seem to recall that when Audi first came out with the TT, it had some high speed aerodynamic problems. I think they were lifting at around 80. Yikes!

Adam, I hear you about the wind noise(pun intended). Above 50 on my harley all I hear is a hurricane of wind whistling. A trick we use on long rides is to use those foam earplugs you get at hardware stores. You can still hear bass sounds like the motor but it takes the higher pitched wind noise away.
