No, they are great and superior to your stock shock and spring set-up. But I don't think you would want to spend over $2,000 on that and drive on crappy NYC roads. Defeats the purpose.

Since you are in NYC you are better off just leaving the car the way it is. Especially with the condition of roads these days. I'd be driving a 4WD SUV if I lived there.

Naturally aspirated V8s do not benefit from chip tuning. They are maxxed out already. Turbo cars is different story, you can double the power.

I would throw a tune on the Audi and maybe do the suspension.
Too bad the RS6 isn't available in the US, but I am sure you can get close to that performance and ride with some mods.

The warranty would be a good idea. Especially in case you need new turbos over the next 3 years. It comes out to $2 per day. I'd do it.

Consider coil overs. Especially KW V2s. I can hook you up if you are interested.
