..and before anyone decides to chew my head off for not taking this up in some sort of tech forum, let me explain myself a little. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif I'm not interested in hearing all the tiniest little nuances about the shapes of the new and improved torque curves and such. I'd just like some real life experiences concerning the Abt chips (impressions, any problems, etc.). I should be taking delivery of a new A6 with the 1.8T engine within 5-6 weeks, this is why I chose this forum. I'm currently driving a TDI (130) A3 and while it has less power, it's a lot lighter than the A6. I've also come to appreciate the torquey nature of the diesel engine and torque is actually what I'd most be seeking by getting the new car chipped. All views will be appreciated, thanks.
