What's more, I'd be willing to bet no one is planning on changing their transmission fluid every 30-40k.

I'm not hating, I think the premise of the chips is sweet! Just wish there was more that could be done to reinforce the surrounding parts.
I'd like an "M" button in my car. Ok I need an extra push of power, push the button and its there. Turn if off when I don't need it and I'd be more than happy...

however power corrupts and once you get a little taste of it you want MORE!!! I don't blame you guys though haha.
