Que tal?

Alright so here's the dl: the car is a 2001 audi allroad 2.7t auto with 118000 miles and still running strong.

I have a 40 mile commute to work(each way), from Santa fe to los Alamos, so I was planning to sell it for a mk4 vw jetta tdi, but the Allroad isn't worth enough and I would have lost money on the trade. So, I'm keeping the Allroad but hoping to change my driving style a little bit and change the direction of modifications on the car without sacrificing too much.

Prior modifications are 20" wheels, dahlback racing chip, forge diverter valves, hotchkis sway bars, lowered about an inch, "sport" transmission code, boost/vacuum gauge, and cross drilled brake rotors.

Planned for the next few months are piggy pipes(removing the --already broken--pre-catalytic converters), change the transmission coding back to oem, remove the mudflaps, water/meth injection, and swapping the heavy 20's for lightweight 17's or 18's with high mileage tires.

So that's my story and my plan, thanks for reading. I hope to get some more modification ideas out out of this site.

Welcome to the site. Undoing a couple of your previous mods will net you a bit of mpg.
