I own a 2000 a4 1.8t, and have followed the a4 for a while now. The 2000 stock has 150 hp and can get up to about 200 hp with an (~500) apr chip. The motor was enhanced in 2001 and has 170 Hp stock and can get around 210 Hp with an (~$500) apr chip. The reason there is such an increase in hp with the aftermarket chips is because the boost on the turbo is controled by the chip. Increase boost equals more hps and hotter turbo. The chips are pretty cool, they are controled by the cruise control unit and can be set to what ever programs you order (stock, 1 bar, etc). So when you bring your car to the dealer for service you can turn it off so the dealer doesn't find out you have chipped and possibly void your warranty. I have not chipped mine because the wife drives it and its an automatic. With the quattro the car handles like no other car. I can take corners at speeds that would make the m3 go into a spin. But stock it is not that fast of a car specially the automatics/quattro. I did drive a chipped 5 speed and the difference off the line was incredible. As far as the 2002 go, I still like the older body style. Maybe the new will grow on me but I think the older body style looks sportier then the new one.
