    Found a 'possible' for 'She who must be obayed /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/love_4.gif !', an A4 1.8SE Avant. So with a naught to sixty by Wednesday next week, how can its engine be tweaked (if at all) and what are the pros and cons (and costs!). More interested in torque than top end speed.

    Cheers!

    Titan,
    I was miffed when I found voice activation was not an option on my cab!

    But, was surprised, because I have had many a conversation on the phone in the car through bluetooth, (spend my life on the phone) and have had no issue at all! Sorry bud! (Admittedly this has been with the roof up rather than down!)

    (PS - many times at speeds far in excess of 40mph - have the M4 between house and office!)

    Still miffed about the lack of voice activation! From my experience it would work with the roof up! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rant.gif

    I'm sure that it can be chipped from around 130bhp to 145bhp not sure on the torque though. Theres a guy locally who had his Golf 1.8gti chipped and I'm sure its now making around 145bhp. Nt a vast increase, but with no turbo then youre limited. I suppose it depends on how much ££ you want to spend. You could always go crazy and change the cams and have some head work done.

    Also, make sure there isn't anything blocking the bluetooth signal, my bluetooth headset and t68m will have a problem giving me a clear coversation if there is no line of sight..

    to fit a turbo i enquired directly to audi and it takes alot of work to the engine as it is a different compression to the 1.8T engine which is a shame otherwise a bolt on turbo would be wonderful! i know its cheeky but a specialist exhaust company will make you a de-cat exhaust system that if fitted soon after an MOT will make a huge amount of difference thought will fail an MOT im told.
