I doubt a chip and exhaust will give much power gains the N/A S4 due out this
year. I can't say for sure, but in my experience cars like this new S4 which
are tuned very tightly from the factory don't leave much room for the
aftermarket crowd to enhance them (unless you want to bolt on forced
induction).  But, we shall see!
