Audi alarm and performance question

I got 2 questions about my vehicle that i need help on. Its for a 2010 Audi A4.

1. I want to install an alarm system on my car but i dont wanna have a separate remote. Is there any way i can install an alarm system using the factory remote?

2. I am looking to upgrade my car's performance. I was told to get a performance chip. I am very new to the euro tuning and i need help. Im looking for hp gains that will still keep my fuel efficiency good. i dont wanna suddenly have to use the highest grade octane either so im not looking for significant boost of HP or performance upgrade.

thank you for any replies and help.

not sure about your first question but regarding chipping your A4, you should check this out:

No need to install an alarm for the a4. Immobilizer itself will prevent 95% of the thieves. The only way they can jack your car is pretty much stealing your keys.
Go APR Chip!

im more concerned about thieves just breaking in the car and stealing shit inside. i just want a siren that goes off if the car is tampered in any way, like how normal aftermarket alarms work. i guess what im really asking is, is it possible to install a loud siren/alarm on factory power locks?

many aftermarket systems will operate your power locks. but if you wanted to use the oem remote, then i'm guessing you'll need to purchase a factory alarm from audi and have it dealer installed.

To be fair, that jump will cost like 2 dollars extra at the end of the day. And really, if you're driving a brand new luxury car, you really can't complain about that 2 dollars.

there are 91 octane programming and 94 oct programming. 91-94 the price difference is 3cents (60l X 3 = $1.80). I guess if you want the convinience of not looking for a chevron when you fill up, you can go with 91 octane. But with an APR chip, you can switch your programming in matter of seconds (before you fill up).

No alarm will help with break ins, if they want to steal something, they will in matter of seconds. Park in a spot with more traffic, and put your valuables in a non-visible area.

an alarm really is useless, if someone really wants what they see inside they will smash and grab regardless. and if they really want to steal the whole car, again they will take it either way. so as long as you put all your stuff away and keep the inside of your car clean you should be fine.

Your car has a basic alarm in it already.
It is equipped with a transponder based immobilizer and all entry points are monitored as well. If a would be thief was to punch your lock and open the door the factory alarm would trigger same goes for the hood and trunk. Without a programmed key it cannot be started either. So to do so they would need your key or somehow obtain one from the dealership.
