Question about Volkswagen Golf
As for claims of increases in performance you should consider the source. There are gains in performance to be had, but as with all things automotive come at a cost. Increased engine power puts more strain on the engine internals. Internals that were not originally designed to cope with these increased stresses. Engine life will therefore suffer.
Increased horsepower is gained by altering the ignition timing and increasing fuel delivery(when chipping only), so obviously fuel consumption will suffer as will driveability of the vehicle especially in slow moving traffic.
As for warranty, the moment you modify an engine in the least bit the warranty is null and void. You may also want to consider the increase in insurance prmium due to driving a performance modified car.
