    Your brakes on a 3.0 cab should be good enough as they are, never owned a 3.0 so can't comment were to start sorry

    The sky is the limit - it just depends on how much you want to spend.
    I'm fairly sure you could probably pay a tuning company to re-profile your cams (high lift).etc but you would need all the supporting mods.etc

    wise move the 3.0 is a great sounding beast but not greatly tuneable unless you slap a charger to it lol.....you could add drilled or grooved disks but it will be for looks really the 3.0 should have the big brakes anyhows, filter, map, sorts sounds to be the limit before £££££ spent

    If you want to go much faster, in reality, keep it stock and start saving your money up to change the car. a 4.2 S4 can be had for £5000 upwards now, there is no way you would get better bang for buck tuning yours to get similar power.

    Alternatively a 1.8TQ would be much more tunable and worth ploughing some cash into.

    I have had a 3.0 Quattro myself (saloon though) and put an exhaust system on it and a panel filter and a map, and it really isn't worth the money.

    My advice then, just enjoy the 220bhp epic V6 engine you have for now, when the power isn't enough then change car :). I loved my 3.0q. No slouch by any means.
