    I just purchased a Dolphin Gray 2002 A4 1.8t Quattro. So far I am truly in love.
    I would say my only complaint would be that there is not a whole lot of power on the low end. Lack of torque?
    Are there any quick simple fixes? A chip? (I've heard stories that chips are a bad way to go about gaining more power) Exhaust? Intake, or I forget the name of the part that pulls air into the turbo?
    Any suggestions would be great. Also links to websites with the parts would be awesome too.
    Thanks so much.

    Chip. Relatively cheap and big gains.

    Get it from a reputable supplier/tuner and you'll have no problems.

    Awesome, I've heard some people say I should do an exhaust first so that when the chip is tuned it will reflect the exhaust... would I be fine without the exhaust and see good returns just from the chip itself?
    Thanks
