    Recently bought this car and am disappointed with the body roll and fore/aft softness. Are there any warranty-safe mods that will remedy this?

    Also what ECU upgrades are available for this model after my warranty runs dry?

  3. If you haven't upgraded yet. I have the same vehicle and upgraded the ECU with a Giac (After much research best T& HP curve runs GREAT!) H&R coil overs(a litte choppy) and larger front and rear bars (amust)

  5. Giac chip around $800 installed and dyno'd in N. Virgina. I had to replace my worn out stock shocks anyway at 60000 miles so the H&R around $1300-1500 (US) was more than a stock replacement however, if I had to do it again I would go with 2Bennett H&R and their shock setup ($1400 US and they give good support and "know" A6 suspension). H-Sport sway bars $300 (install yourself). Web sites and good descriptions are found using Yahoo or equiv search engines. For ~$2500 a more balanced platform...next inter-cooler upgrade ($1000), A8 drilled rear brakes, etc. Guess we could go on forever
