I did a few small cosmetic mods first though. I did tinted side markers on the bumpers, I tinted the clear blinkers on my mirror, I did red LEDs for the footwell lights, and I installed an auto-dimming mirror with home link.

Vulcano Red is an Audi color. My boss has a new TT in it, and it's sexy as hell.

Ordered the Magnaflow cat back and APR Carbonion stage 1 intake at the same time. Magnaflow shipped quicker, so that was my first power mod.
