    What BHP are the older style M3's, they are bloody fast too! I'm getting a bit cheesed off, so far i've been up against a quick Astra 2.0 turbo which was apparently standard, a CTR which looked standard but kept up with me.

    I've had mine chipped too but don't really notice the difference.

    I'm sure something is either wrong with the car or every car i've had a dabble with recently has been modified. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Somethings wrong - I'd put money on the N75 & associated wiring. Get it VAG'd ASAP.

    It's only been chipped for 4.5 weeks, and have noticed it over the last 2 weeks.

    It's strange but i really reckon the torque is down. Notice it in 3rd and 4th.

    I second the requirement for a boost gauge on a chipped car, I'm getting one fitted on Tuesday to help diagnose variances in performance. You need that proof that there is a real issue and is not your imagination.

    They are so far away, AMD done it. Well when i say a long way its about 300miles round trip. I'd also have to take a day off work.

    I will try and ring them though.
