The reason is because yes.. for aesthetics and also for reducing the engine noise to the cabin...

Go take a look at the engine bay on an Audi, they are trying to emulate the best. Btw my dad drives an Audi A4 with an apr chip that brings it to 200hp and 215lbs of torque. He's driven my 03 and loves it. He's even made comments that he would like to own one. Incedentally, he loves the sweet sound of the v6 over his turbo 1.8litre.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Which is quicker the A4 chipped or the Tiburon V6?

Curious, cause I am still in a bit of a limbo between the two cars. I am liking the Tiburon V6 so far cause I have 4 against 1 girls that like the Tiburon more (and that is a major factor <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>) but the A4 has more aftermarket options and potential in it then the V6, for thousands less. (its a used A4 '98)

It's hard to say, his a4 wagon is tiptronic and he just got the chip in january. Haven't really lined up with pops in a drag race. The tibs power is much more linear though than the chipped a4. Don't get me wrong the a4 is fast but you punch it and then suddenly the boost will come on where as my car it's there from low revs in first all the way up. Incedentally his transmission just started slipping and it turns out he had a bad tranny. It's in the shop right now getting replaced. He has a warranty that came with the car when he bought out his lease so luckily it won't cost him anything!
