Keep you new car stock for now. I drove stock for 6K miles before intake and stage 1 tune. Now after 5K miles at stage 1 I'm going stage 2 with TBE at 11K miles. No need to rush into modding. Get to know the car and how it drives under all different conditions. Take the time to read this and other owner forums to be sure you want to go forward into modding. Read up on the clutch slipping some are having after stage 1 and stage 2 tunes. Getting a clutch replaced under warranty will be difficult after a tune. I have the $$$ set aside for new clutch kit already, even before my stage 2 tune.

I agree with Johnny_P; spend the $$$ on a good set of summer tires. Just advice from an older (but not wiser) guy.

Congrads on the new car and best of luck !!! Paul
