    Newbie A3 owner.

    Hi forum,
    I have just bought a 99 A3 turbo sport. Does anyone do a chip upgrade for these, I like the build quality and such like but would like a few more ponies under my bonnet. I have been used to a heavily modified Saab 900 classic aero with 250bhp and 310nm of torque. I am not looking for these kind of figures but would like to have about 180ish bhp. Hope you can help and thanks.
    P.S. here is a pic of my old girl.

    300 lb ft of torque in a petrol car? Must be some modifications!

    Yep she had a fair few mod's. These cars had anything between 210-276 nm of torque from new depending on the type of APC it had in it. One of the selling points were that you could out pace a porsche 911 carrera from 70-100mph in 5th gear so you had a good base car from the start for modding.
    cheers.

    310nm of torque = 230 lb/ft (approx)
