    Update:
    Installed AWE non-res downpipes yesterday :D Will have sound clips as soon as I get some nice weather.
    Now just looking for an Eventuri intake...

    Next mods that I am looking at for the coming year:
    - (Maybe) Eventuri Intake (Maybe -> Need)
    - AWE non-res downpipes (Maybe -> done XD)
    - 1SEC Carbon/ECStuning carbon fiber mirrors (bought from CarbonImports but it needs to be installed)
    - ECS tuning carbon fiber spoiler (maybe)

    I was thinking about getting the Armaspeed intake as well, how are you liking it? How is the quality and fitment? Have you noticed any additional power/sound?

    Thanks,

    Iím liking your left field approach, what do you think of the intakes, was there a noticeable improvement?

    Yet another question on the Armaspeed...do they pretty much look like the OEM intake but just out of carbon fiber? Are they using a cone or OEM panel filter?

    Thanks,
    I'm liking it a lot. You get some more engine noises but besides that I dont really notice any additional power. Definitely feels a bit more responsive. Quality is fantastic - the carbon fiber is nice and glossy, i just hope it doesnt yellow in the future but will keep this thread updated if it does. Fitment could be slightly better but for the cost I think it is perfectly fine. It fits well and installation was easy for the most part. Definitely get the ECS lock tool - its $60-70 but it it made removing the vacuum tube lock easy. You could also cut part of the lock and not have to purchase the tool but I didnt want to do any cuts.

    Looks really good, was thinking about those wheels on my Ibis white RS5.

    Any reason why you did 20x9 with 265 tires instead of the usual 20x10.5 and 285

    I got them second hand and for a pretty good deal. 10.5 would be nice but I didn't want to spend the extra $$$. I got wheels and tires for the cost of just the rims brand new.
