so all the reasonable performance mods I can do (engine)(drivetrain) are done due to having another 4 years of warranty...I have done

(engine)
LT headers
hi-flow cats
corsa exhaust
x-pipe
tune
ported TB
home made intake tube
drop in K&N

(driveline)
katech shift/UUC bushings
UUC diff bushing
new diff
have bags (not installed yet)
and custom made washers for the craddle

(suspension/brakes)
leaving it alone, I don't mind the stance how it is
going to order some SS brake lines
HAWK pads on shelve in garage

(visual mods)
3000K HID fogs
tinted fogs/turns/3rd brake light/reverse lights
powdercoated rims
powdercoated grill/painted trim
LED lights
V floor mats
ordered SBR two tone pedals
painted the trash can lid (i like it)

and I have changed all fluids to amsoil/motul


besides doing visual mods that I like....did I miss any major performance mods that I can get away with while still under warranty???

Not too much more you can do without cracking into the motor.

Have you considered Hotchkis anti-sway bars?

I have, what I don't know is will they make a enough difference with doing CG etc?

I'm really horrible at sensing each individual mod's affect on handling, etc., and that's how I did them: piecemeal. But going from stock to Hotchkis/GC/600F+650R springs, I just love the way it corners with this setup. Nice and flat, yet a ride still tolerable enough to pass the wife test. The change is not overly dramatic, so don't think it's day and night. Hard to adequately describe, but it is the way the car should have come originally. :thumbsup:

hopefully at Vday I get a few rides from people who have CG/different shocks...and feel in person...my Audi is super firm...but handle like it's on rails....I wanted to keep the V comfortable
