Nice, I'm sure if you don't like the looks after a while you can always find someone to trade with.

Do you already have just a drop in filter? Why not do that to begin with?

Yeah, I found it for $43, but I don't think that included shipping. Still, $50 is less than the APR intake...and I think any increase in flow is going to help the K04 breath better in the mid and top range.

Drop in filter doesn't do squat. The stock intake is a serious bottle neck when you get to K04 level.

I said it in another thread, but K04 with the stock intake is like having sex with a condom on. It's great and all, but your still holding back your load.

BB catted and resonated DP shipped today. If all goes to plan, it will be installed with the coils a week from today, on 7/16, and the car will be flashed to the "normal" / non de-tuned K04 file

me either! very excited for the dp, the extra power, AND the drop. Boost gauge and steering column mount should ship any day now and the car will be dyno'd the first weekend in August along with several other cars - Golf R, K04 GTI, etc. Should be interesting to see the numbers.

A mere week away from me not being able to say Q5 anymore? Sweet! I bet you can't wait! I'm putting on DG springs this weekend, so I'm pretty excited about that.

So, are you more excited for the drop because Q5 or the DP because better growl and power?

I'm SURE you're going to love the extra power, and definitely want to see a revised video, but I'm quite curious what you think of the HPA coils. I'm super anal about ride comfort, and I'm still loving mine.

agreed on both accounts there. I really liked the DG springs on the GTI, so as long as its close to that, and to the car's Ive been in with ST's (which sounds like it should be even more comfortable), then I should be all
