Overclock your car ?
Coulnd't resist it, I overclocked my car :)

You sure can feel the difference.

wifey is no issue, just hope that insurance doesn't find out if you ever have an accident... because if your car has more BHP than what it's insured for... you'll pay all

Nah, not realy.
Even lease cars are overclocked.

I'll ask my agent.

Indeed, when you have an accident at least crash the whole front side!

Hmm, someone at 9lives, could it be XTRATEC? 399€ sounds like a lot to me, though you get over 25% extra power so it might be worth the upgrade after all. Friend of me has 130pk A4 break, nice car to drive with, I guess the 145pk will be roughly the same. What exactly does it do, increase turbo pressure? What's your new high speed top score? :p

I remember once reading an article talking about ODB2, car analysis for the electronics minded guy. When I'm old I ... :p
