Our pakwheel member did 200 last month on motorway ..
His friend was in 2011 gli 1.3 manual and was not going above 180 but his new Gli Auto did 200
He is not a biased member
He has many cars including 9th gen civic
So yes i trust him ..
Doing 200 is not something impossible for 1.3 sedan ..
But yes if some one says he did 200 in 40 seconds or even 50 seconds then we can use this word " impossible "
Plus again i would say brandnew vs used matters alot ..
even my dad did 190 in xe 1998 indus corolla once but yes it was a new car at that time ..
I seriously think your Gli is / was not mechanically perfect
