Hmm, I am in 5th gear!
With the speedo needle straight up (at 80mph), the tach needle is straight up. And it's more than 3500, it's about 3700-3800.

2002 or pre-2002?
2002 1.8T transmission has taller ratio through different final drive gear.
50 mph @ 2000 rpm
Extrapolating that...
70 mph @ 2800 rpm
75 mph @ 3000 rpm
80 mph @ 3200 rpm
