    Cheapest effective thing is to uprate the ARBs.

    After that,change the exhaust and get a decent intake,and move to STg2 or 2+.

    After that,everything is expensive.

    Unfortunately fella, cheap & audi don't go hand in hand lol.

    Didn't realise S3 on a 57 did black edition.

    You have good tech already, these aren't cheap, but nice tech upgrades, what about auto lights, autodimming mirror, folding mirrors, ami, mk2 rns-e upgrade, bixenons adaptives, white dis speedo, numerous mods, but not cheap I'm afraid.

    Stiffer ARBs lessen the tendency to understeer and roll on cornering.

    Improves the handling,and makes the most of the power you have.
