I'm with you on that one...wish the interior was darker but that also makes for hot summer days inside too...I just added seat covers so they wouldn't get too dirty too quick...

The seat covers I got from Wal-Mart fit fine actually...They weren't any better or worse than the ones I found out Autozone or a few other cars shops where I live. To get something nice you would have to go online but I don't like to keep them on too long because they do collect lots of dirt and dust and the padding wears down. I would rather pay 25-30 bucks for cheaper ones and replace them every 6 mos rather than keep them on forever....I have to say the ones I bought (black and silver) go with the interior nicely.

As far as the headlights the cheapest and most recognized option is the LED Audi mod...You'll notice by looking around the site a few people are starting to get into custom projector lights....Much more expensive but so much classier!! Looking into this myself but all my mods will be coming this summer since it's getting way too cold out and no heated garage.....

As far as the SRI that is the easiest way to get a beefier sound from your engine but Matemorh is right, you won't see any HP gains from that....And given you live in Pa with the inclement weather a CAI is risky since you will be dealing with allot of the elements and it's seated so far down into the engine.

Then again this is your car...so it's always what you want to do...and always post pics...no mod is ever exactly the same!!!

thanks for all the advice!! i think i'm gonna do hid's the whole custom projectors seems to expensive for me and too expierenced. But about the sri or cai i'm probably gonna go with the sri just because living where i do i do deal with alot of the elements. i know the sri isnt gonna give me much at all hp gains but it will look nice and sound good too.

any ideas where i could get a sri or mod one or something
thanks for all the advice its very appriciated

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you on this....If you haven't looked, just do a quick search of SRI or CIA and a whole bunch of things will come up and you will see some of the users of this sites ideas!
