Chipping panned

My son-in-law mentioned that he is considering having a chip installed in his Audi two litre diesel engine. It is a 2007 model. It seems that a chip will increase both horsepower and economy. I read something about this some time ago that was not totally complimentary. What do you think?

Yes. www.superchips.co.uk does a very good plug in reprogrammer called Bluefin for this engine that improves low speed torque and hence economy, and allows deprogramming back to standard if necessary. But it still needs to be declared to your insurer.
