    pair of RS4 downpipes, and or CAT back and a remap - 310-340 depending on your car

    skip the CAI, Intercoolers, OBD2 mods until you are committed to breaching 400-450!

    wheels are so personal you will get 1000 answers

    Wheelwise I think you can't beat BBS LMs. My Ming Blue TQS had them and loads of people commented on them at petrol stations and such. I had them spaced 20mm tho for a really good wide stance (and to clear the B6 S4 brakes)

    BBS CHs are also nice and I like the standard RS4 and RS6 wheels too. Down to choice really.

    I always use google images for ideas.

    the most bang for buck mod you can do is a remap. Even on an otherwise completely standard car it makes a fair difference.

    Use a tuner that knows these cars well, rather than a generic flash tuner that hasnt a clue what they're doing. You dont say where your located? I get a sense your from the US, so recommendations here are likely going to be thin on the ground as its a predominantly UK forum.

    The remap alone will take it to a little above 300, but it really depends how far you want to go. With decent downpipes and exhaust, and some intercoolers, and a good tune, you'll likely see 340-350ish but you wont get much further on the stock turbos.

    Dont bother with a CAI, the stock airbox is fine until your going for BIG power.
