OK - I know this question has been asked in many different guises, and I have read through the archives in order to try and make my mind up but have failed to find anything to convince me one way or the other. I own a 67K 2000 standard S3 and am starting to get used to the power. Obviously I would like to get it chipped but I am still worried about the potential consequences in terms of reliability and impending repair costs directly associated with the chipping. Previous reassurances that I have read in the archives seem to be from chipped S3 owners who have newer cars with lesser mileage when getting them chipped. What I am really looking for is owners who have older higher mileage chipped S3s who may have been in a similar predicament to myself. I am convinced that the /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif factor of chipping the car will please me but I will be keeping this car for another 2-3 years and so need to be assured that I am in all probability not in for any nasty surprises if I do chip it. Annually I do up to 25K and so in those years of ownership the mileage will go well in excess of 100K. So what should I do? Pleasure or peace of mind? Come on someone tell me they have a 200K S3 that has been chipped since birth!! Thanks a lot, B.
