ça va loin

What's that mean? It looks like the phrase is very context dependant, and I couldn't find an intelligible definition.

Judging by the context that I had, though, it seemed to me that it meant something along the lines of "very savvy of me". So, could it be one of the meanings of the phrase? Thank you.

    "ça va loin" means "it goes beyond that"... It's to say that we think that something has a lot more impact and consequences that only what has been described.

    You can also hear " ça peut aller loin" meaning it could get worse
