I have spent $5000 and my engine and wheels are still stock. No kidding. I've kept a running total. That doesn't include the 60+ hours of labor that I've done myself.

That's exactly what I'm doing, plus fuel pump. everything was back ordered when I picked up my R but so far everything arrived except my APR TB RSC exhaust (in diamond black).. Supposed to ship out Monday.. Might be stage 2+ by the end of next week

Was also thinking of throwing an APR intercooler in there, I hear it does wonders...if I have any money left...

I'm with you on this. Or maybe just $4k to payments and $1k to tweaks!

It seems like every R owner has a build thread. I'll save people the trouble of reading through yet another one.

I second paying off some payments... Especially since I'm planning to get summer tires / wheels and snow tires on my denvers soon anways.

Definitely take a portion for Eibach Sportlines, Twintake and APR Stage 1.

Here is where hard earned $$ have gone so far.

$1k - Lots of Ventureshield protection film (way better than 3M clear bra)

$1k - LED tails and VCDS

$1.2k - Thule aeroblade roof rack and twin 594XT bike rack attachments

$200 - Weathertech floorliner floor mats

Soon -
$1.5k - Winter tires and wheels

Next potential changes
$1.8k - HPA tune and possible down pipe
$1k - HPA haldex controller
$2k+ - aftermarket wheels
