[BiturboS4] New S4 owner

Hi guys

I chipped my S4tt at 15k with the abt 310hp chip.  I am now at 44k miles
without any problems.  Best purchase I ever made; I'd probably have sold my
kids for an RS4 by now, but with the abt S4 there is little point.  I use
the car for everyday driving and find that I very rarely have to use full
power.  Driven with (some) restraint and respect, the rest of the
mechanicals seem to be up to it.  In the UK at least, the Audi warranty is
unaffected if they install the abt chip.  Worth checking up on - you're
missing out otherwise
