Since he is CA, he's presented with a somewhat different situation than those 
not in CA... gas formulation.  CA has different formula requirements than 
every other state.  I used to travel to LA on a fairly regular basis.  When I had 
time, I'd drive because I enjoy it.  I was always surprised about the amount 
of knock I would experience there, when every other place I went (sea level or 
not) I didn't have an issue.  My car is all the RS2 stuff with the VMAP and 
above mentioned software.  I have been in better than 25 states with my car, 
and haven't had knock issues anywhere except CA.

Cooling his charge temps will help with this issue, but he might need to look 
into having his software modded for a few degrees less timing.  Better yet, 
take a tanker truck down to Mexico and fill 'er up with Pemex Magna... best 
fuel I've ever had in my Audis!
