On a US-spec Mkiv TT, it's easy. Just remove the traction control fuse.
MKIV.COM
(the oem traction control system kind of sucks so it's double-win)

On a euro-spec, I believe it's a little more difficult. From what I understand, you need to purchase a speed limiter removal 'black box' from HKS:
HKS Speed Limit Defencer (Type I)

Honestly not sure. US-spec limited to 155mph.

i'd say its the same as the us-spec one then. is there any reason why it is limited to 155mph / 250km/h anyway? maybe so it's harder to over rev / blow / damage the engine??? thnx anyway

I suspect it's related to insurance rates and/or import regulations...
