I would imagine it would be ok, although the manual asks for 91 octane.
It says "premium fuels only" right on the gas door. I just sold my GTI TSI. In some ways it "felt" faster than my 135 due to the contrast between no turbo and turbo. The lag really gives an illusion of power. The BMW is faster in every way.
