My friends always bug me about the way I drive too.  They asked why do I need the S4 when I don't even use all 170hp in my ex-A4 all the time ;-)

Ti, wish I had your 'restraint'..  I come close, though..  Would
you believe that I chipped at ~10k miles and currently have
~39k...  but..

Amazingly, I can honestly say that I have driven in chip mode
less than 2k miles just b/c of my paranoia of something
seriously going wrong.. My friends let me have it for not
letting her loose enough..

As to CEL coming on.. I've never had it go on.. hopefully it
stays that way..
