Yesterday, idled at a stop light, the car stalls and dies (with the EPC and CEL light on). I turn it on...

    Allright, so i am getting close to 64000km, which means the spark plug change. I have been also chiped with Wetterauer 1.1 bar since 8000km. Never had a problem with misfiring, starting, etc. Should I put one range colder spark plugs in , or go with regular plugs? My Wetterauer dealer folded up...

    Hey guys, after reinstalling my Wetterauer chip, after patiently waiting for the company to get all the loose ends straightened up, the car seems to be running fine. I can break the tires loose in first and second, but I noticed one thing while opening the car up on an empty hwy. I STILL HAVE...

    This is for any member across the board that has been chipped with Wetterauer and needs any sort of tuning issues smoothed out. You can contact Steve's European Auto @248-674-2770. I had my chip sent to them to get resoldered. I had been having consistent problems with the car stalling...

    I have been a customer of Wetterauer since March of 1999. I first read about them on, now known as Audiworld. The general consensus was that the Wetterauer chip provided linear throttle response and lots of power and torque when needed. I won't belabor the details, but my research was...

    I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything about Wett reopening somewhere in the states? I decided that I wanted the 1 Bar Wett chip and they pulled the plug on Kelly before I was able to order. Damn, smells like some shit BMW would pull on us.:hmmm:

    Today the owner of wetterauer went into his U.S. office and fired everyone. No notice! Just you're done and he packed everything up and left. Good luck getting any help with your wetterauer chips!

    I've been searching for a Wetterauer US distributor and can't find one on the Internet. Does anyone know if they make a chip for a B5.5 V6? At Autobraun in Canada they make one for the B5. I can't find any info.

    I have an '02 tiptronic and just got chipped by Wetterauer (1.0 bar) about two weeks ago. My car is completely stock other than the new chip. I absolutely love the chip but cannot get used to driving in automatic. I usually drive in tip mode and everything works great with that. The extra...
