Thanks Wil, I understand that statement to be very true. So, our (mandatory for UNCATALYZED ROW Carrera 3.2 liter) "98" octane is in fact similar to the U.S. "93" ... In other words, as soon as the government starts reducing the max. octane to "Euro-95" (the "green" stuff), wich would mean abt same as the U.S. "91" (maybe "90"?), we will NEED a new chip DOWNTUNING our engines...
