      I passed 15000 km so I did my oil/filter change and rotated tires. Was done at ~11k when I bought it but thought might as well to get it back on track.

      Did you seriously ask if adding ~80hp and ~80tq was an improvement over the stock 300?

      Stage 1 on my S4 was underwhelming. Stage 2 was where you felt it on the butt meter.

      Reasonable question to ask.

      This all really speaks to how conservative VW was with this cars output from the factory. The S4 really needed a stage 2 to feel anything on the butt dyno. Cost some significant $$$ to make more smiles per gallon.

      I’ve had good luck so far with mine that I bought on eBay. I had to file off about 1mm of the clear on the tabs because it was making the fit too tight but other than that they’ve been great.

      While not totally night and day, there is a definite discernible difference. Best way I can describe it with my butt dyno is that low and mid end is much improved, feels like there’s less lag and it’s more linear feeling, car just feels more eager to go.

      Now the TCU tune imo is like night and day, the drivability of D mode is a lot better. Doesn’t feel as sluggish or upshifts too fast, feels more natural imo. Seems like my dsg farts are less pronounced now tho, which was surprising.

      These were from urotuning. Bought these a little over a year ago. The fit and finish isn’t perfect but my CF has not bubbled or cracked just yet and still looks pretty decent.

      Yep, that's where I got mine. Within a week, like I mentioned, they started to bubble and separate from the ABS cover under the CF. They refunded me no problem, and let me keep them. I still have them on because I've been too lazy to swap them back out for the stock ones, but every time I get near my car, I cringe at the cheapness of them. They're nice from 5+ feet, but then you don't see the CF weave so they just look like a dull grey with some strange reflections. They're definitely on the cheaper side, but what did I expect for $140? Glad yours are holding up.

      Yea I’ve heard the quality and fit and finish varies a lot. When these crap out on me eventually I’ll def be looking into something a little nicer. Probably from osir or premium Deutsche Carbon, can’t justify the $6-700 the oem cf goes for.

      I don’t think any of these performance intake manifolds would have flappers.

      As the title says, did a resonator delete a few weeks ago and am happy with the increased exhaust note. Small but just right for me and the price is right. Added the homelink mirror because I was sick of futzing with a remote in the sunglass holder. Now I can put my sunglasses where they belong! Also did my first DSG and oil change at 40k. I bought the care at 29k, so that is why it is the first time. Used an oil extractor for the oil since the filter is on the top and really liked this way instead of getting under the car.

      Thinking of the following mods: Shopdap wheel spacers , facelift LED taillights , APR Stage 1 ECU and TCU tune, dynablink mirrors, aspherical mirrors for both drivers and passenger side, jackpads and floor jack, tint, legit speed front license plate mount.

      You can check with KakaRakis Performance via Facebook message, they are Grecian company

      No flaps in it so there will be error codes which can be disabled by custom software

      Have to remove one of my AWE Switchpath tail pipes (drivers side outer with the valve), unfortunately two years of North East winters haven't been to kind to the clamps and one of them is stuck on there reaaaaallllll good. Anyone got tips to get the thing off? I loosened the nut but the clamp won't release even after using a propane torch on the fastener area.

      Some kind of antiseize like WD-40 or rust remover. Let it saturate and try again.
