Welcome, Quincy. Nice choice of cars for your purchase. Santorin is the best
color. Black is the best interior.

ToyGuy shifter is hailed as the best on AudiWorld. I have Stratmosphere and
like it...but I haven't compared to others. Boost gauge is a great addition
too. Check out SPP for a nice A-pillar pod that can receive a 52mm Omori

Soon, you'll want to chip the car and possibly add an exhaust.  As with most
mods, there's an endless debate on the chips. I would consider only the
GIAC-x or Abt. Go GIAC-x if you plan to use higher-than-91/93 octane and
want the best performance. Choose Abt if it's a daily driver because of its
smoothness. APR is weak and MTM has no top end. For exhaust, I like my
Miltek because it is quiet and very low back pressure.

Soon, you'll want to sell your house and donate a limb to finance a Stage
III setup.  Until then, enjoy your car!


P.S. Most things are IMHO.
