Been contemplating doing some light modding to my motor. I cant decide which to do tho, I'll probably end up doin both but I'll do one before crimbo and the other some time after.
The options are;

Audi S6 LED lights like Sirhenry
OR
CAI induction kit

What you reckon? I cant decide atall, so hopefully you guys can help?
They both pretty much gona cost the same, about 300 quid.

Hmmm, do you guys think itl make much difference? Performance and noise wise? Will I need to get my car re- remapped?

If you have a remap already it should "learn" the CAI.

When we added the carbonio to ours it made a noticable difference in sound and throttle response, we don't have a remap but the ECU has learned the carbonio already and its only been on for about 300miles worth of driving (3 months!!! :s: )

Will it add any extra performance? 20-30 bhp? (haha!) or 2-3 bhp?

Id be well happy with an extra 10bhp to be honest, didnt think it would do anything but make it louder. Thats all Im gettin it for really. To set off car alarms in multi-storey carparks!
