    Talking Help me spend some money lol

    Ok, so basically it's my birthday in a couple of weeks and I'll be getting some money for it, so thought I'll put some towards it too and treat myself to something nice for my car, but can't decide what to do?? I'll have around £1500 don't really want to spend more than that at the min, but may do if a good suggestion comes along!

    Car as it stands is a 2007 3dr sline in silver. It's the 2.0t dsg, stage 1 with a milltek catback and neuspeed P-flo induction kit. Also lowered on h&r springs 50mm. I've tried to upload a pic not sure if it's worked though :/

    Right so first idea I had was, to get the rear s3 diffuser and have it sprayed gloss black along with the audi rings front and back and the grill surround, and also have a wheel refurb as lacquer has started peeling in places.

    Then it was coilovers and some new alloys, but the mrs occasionally drives it and it kind of put me off getting the new wheels with her at the wheel occasionally lol!

    Then I thought forget that I'll go for stage 2, rest of the exhaust and dsg map aswel!

    Then me being me, decided to change my mind yet again and I'm now thinking of having the facelift done (08+) pref new s3 front end, but is that possible for around the £1500 mark?

    Any ideas or suggestions would be very much appreciated as I just can't make my mind up, and I know it's my car and some may say just do what you want, not what others want, but I just can't come to a decision and hoping a few other ideas may sway me.

    Look forward to your replies

    No I haven't tbh mate, never really liked the front end too much always thought that's what let it down a bit in my eyes, hence no pics of it lol.

    Yea I'm not that clued up on the 2.0 tuning but surely you'd see another 40bhp+ speak to some guys from Crewe called more BHP they know there stuff on the 2.0tfsi they will tell you some figures and do DSG remapping too. All custom mapped on the rollers

    Yeah, I know roughly how much extra bhp I'll get but just wondering whether I would really notice it or not, for the amount of money I'll be spending too! I know stage 1 you do feel the increase mine went from 200bhp to 257bhp at amd with the exhaust and P-flo (I know some say amd's dyno can be a bit generous) but I really felt the increase there and was more than happy with the service I received, so if I was to go down that route, I think I would be paying them a visit again tbh, plus think I get a slight discount as had stage 1 and Milltek done there. Does anybody know also, if I have the downpipe and decat or sports cat, would it change the sound at all? I know it's the cat back that usually provides the sound, but would just like a little more from it even though it is the non res! I love the look and sound of the BCS powervalve, but after spending just under £600 6 months ago on the catback, don't really want to be changing that!
