Mainly cosmetic till the tune comes out. I have parts in hand that will be going on (see above) and will be doing smoked side markers ASAP.

If/when APR brings out the tune I will be driving down to Auburn (its not that far for me and I have family there) and getting the flash at the factory.

Once my warranty is gone (it is a big deal for me and wont be that long) I intend to do the intake and exhaust.

I'm up for suggestions but didnt see the obligatory "mod list" in your signature (tounge in cheek). What have you done that you like and what have you done that you would not do again?

i had some stuff in my signature but i ran out of room for more words. im kind of in the same situation as you where i have parts but i cant exactly put them on right now. ive got wheels and spacers but i want to get bigger spacers and tires before i mount the wheels. i have a osir shift boot but i need to get a new shift knob for it to work. i have a carbon lip on the way. i always hate it when i cant put the parts on right away. oh i also have blue tint mirrors and vag com and euroswitch and a RNS510 and weathertech digi mats. i am thinking about what im gonna get with my tax money, either awe intake or led tails.

Tails for sure. And if you get a tax refund, your lucky. I've cut a check to the IRS each year for the past 12 years....and I file as Married with 1 dependant yet I have 4 dependants. *&^%$ IRS!!!!

OSIR knob in black aluminum has my eye....have you thought about that to go with your boot?

Love my Detroits, so I'm not interested in wheels....
