What year is your 8? Newer (but not BRAND NEW) models have more chip options.

Where are you located? Germany has MORE chip-tuning options, but PES-Tuning may have something for your car if you're in AMerica.

Don't expect to pick up more than 15 horsepower, regardless of what the chip company says, however 15 horses is still a good increase.

audi tech, is this a reputable site to buy a performance chip on? wanted to know because they have a (send us your ecu unit and we will return it back to you with the new performance chiped installed). and 15 horses extra is not bad at all. thats good... thanks for the info buddy...thanx

034 motorsport is extremely well known and has a very good record with customers. I have ordered several parts from them over the years myself and have had no problems whatsoever. PES is more of a supercharger company, you can check out my thread on a different forum here. http://www.audifreaks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7

A unitronic chip from 034 is better.
