    Performance Upgrade Advice?

    Hi guys, newbie here after some advice!

    I have a 2007 black Audi S3 with about 17k on the clock and am looking to increase the power by modding. What are best options and costs?

    Will an induction kit make a good sound on an S3?

    LOL, what do you mean?

    If I were to do it all again I'd go Intake, exhaust then remap. Exhaust and intake really did open in up nicely!

    Listen to this man. I did. Now I own a Revo'd rocketship otherwise known as a car.

    Either Revo or GIAC is the way to go although VAGCheck get good reviews also.

    I have the APR stg2+ and must say its amaizing and im VERY VERY satisfied... a true beast... didnt have any experience with revo or giac but APR is SUPER!!!!

    Who ever you decide to go with it will be a real transformation and give your car all the extra scharpness that it was lacking when it came out of the factory...

    How will it effect the day to day driving style of the car? Still be as smooth etc just with more grunt?

    I dont want a really loud exhaust system but somthing more throaty would be good! My brother has an R32 and that sounds awesome under full chat! Any manufacturers offer somthing similar for the S3?

    How will the warranty be effected?

    The day to day driving will be better cause you will be using less throttle to drive normaly and as the exhaust, thats the beauty of Milltek TBE at lower revs sounds quiet allmost like stock, and when you open the throttle the beast awakens!!!1

    A turbo inline 4 car will never sound the same as a 3.2 - 6. I would recommend the get the exhaust done first then the remap or the intake. Lowering Backpressure on a turbo car is the first thing you want to do before other mods.

    Next up is REVO!!! I love it... Getting my Stage III back today!!
    A3 2.0T Sportback DSG.

    Engine / Trans:
    K04, Unitronic Stg II+ & DSG Stg II, S3 Injectors and Intercooler, APR F/Pump. BSH Intake, Forge DV, Oettinger Turbo Outlet, Eurojet throttle pipe, Milltek TBE. SP Meth Injection.

    Brakes and Suspension:
    Brembo 6 pot w/ 345mm slotted disks, TT front suspension, HPA Coliovers, OZ Palladio, 225/40/18 BS RE001

    Others:
    S3 Front, Pedals, & Mirrors, 09 SB Skirts & LED Rear Lights, Original HID retrofit, Oettinger Roof Spoiler. Defi Turbo Guage, FBMFSW
