I had a bunch of body work done due to a wreck i was in shortly before i left.

USP front bumper and valance
S4 side flairs
Painted front replacement bumper hood and pained all grey lowers to match the new bumper

They also did a complete overhaul on the car replacing everything from the motor forward. Such as radiator AC/Condenser belts and fixed a small oil leak and a couple vacuum lines ect ect all of which were damaged in the wreck

Performance

Boost brothers FMIC (POS ;P)
APR stage 3 kit (K04, injectors, 4 tunes)

To be done: Exahust

Tunes
1 Stock
2 91 Octane
3 93 Octane (Cannot find anywhere!!! so its useless)
4 100 Octane

Personally im not a HUGE fan of this kit seems a little over priced for the performance gains (This is according to my butt dyno that is)

The shop its self...on a scale from 1-10 id say a 6, Ill explain below.

First off their "Customer service" is HORRID. Every time id call they would give very vague info and always say they would call right back and NEVER would. the quality of work was decent. they had to match paint and it isnt done very well (Will provide photos later tomorrow). To top it off i got the car back and the lugs on the driver side were finger tight at best im lucky they didn't fall off! not to mention it was missing a lug nut.when i called about the lugs i got kind of a oh well that sucks. i pulled into my drive way today and it started pouring out coolant. it appeared that when they installed the turbo the line had been sliced and gave way when i pulled into the driveway (luckily it happened there and now on the road). They had 7 plus months to do the work and im not impressed with the quality produced. Some of the good i saw in the shop was the pricing. I wasn't charged a storage fee nor was i charged full price on most parts and labor so that was a big bonus however, i did spend WAY WAY to much for what was done. But the car does run great other than the above mentioned issues and im sure they'll be fixed by the shop with no issues. Also this shop is very honest with you and if you're wasting money in one area they'll guide you in the right area so your money is better spent. will i go back? Yes and , for warranty and basic maint from work they've done. I prob wont have another BIG project done there.

This is in no way meant to be a "Slam" on Audimotive its just my experience.

I will provide before and after photos tomorrow (18 Sep).
