After much deliberation I finally chose my new car, an Audi A4 S Line (211ps) B8 model (2009-10)
I am now reviewing the immediate modifications to apply, and seeking some advice before progressing.
1, alloys will be replaced with the 19" 7 Arm Dual spoke alloys wrapped in some Perrilli P Zero Nero's (a tyre i have now used on all my previous cars) I have seen a few people painting their brake calipers, however I was planning on have the stock parts replaced for Brembo calipers/brakes and disks. - has any one done this already and do you find any improvement above and beyond the stock units
2, I want to replace the front grill with the RS4 honeycomb grill - is this a direct replacement or is further modification required for this unit to fit?
3, I want to replace the exhaust system with a miltek system - fitted by AMD technik Essex replacing the rear valance with the S4 dual pipe version. Has anyone experience of the miltek system? and in regards to replacing the valance, is this a simply pop off and on or requires further modification?
4, I want to replace the windows with tinted windows, I have no exerpience of film tinting, however have seen many done badly which leads me to ask does anyone do replacement tinted OEM glass? and how much would I expect to spend on replacing all the glass?
5, I have done much reading on the replacement of the cold air intake filter, with a K&N panel filter - obviously taking into consideration that the unit should be washed and dried before using for the first time to avoid the factory oil residue. I understand there is next to no HP increase with this but smooths out the acceleration and makes it abit throatier? Again - has anyone installed one? Good/ Bad/ Indifferent about them?
6, I finally want to remap the ECU, I assume its best todo this once exhause system, panel filter and new alloys are replaced. Does anyone have any advice on which one would be best to go for - again i intend to drop it into AMD Technik to install the Revo. Has anyone had this installed - again Good / Bad Indifferent?
This is my modification schedule, is there any other quick wins for performance and handling that im missing?
Thanks in advanced
