More Money, More Problems

I've owned my 6s for 3 years now and since I've had it I've had no serious problems with it, but some minor ones and eye sores thanks to the previous owner. I've been away at college for almost two years now and banked some cash along the way in hopes of buying a new car soon. But it was not until recently while I was away that a bunch of things went wrong at once and my dad had to bring my car in to get the oil pan gasket replaced, new battery, brakes rotated, etc etc. While it was at the shop we think someone backed into it because the front bumper was cracked more than usual and the guy offered to "touch up the scuffs" for free. Now it has turned into "we can probably get you that full body kit, painted, and installed for a big discount." Which really makes me think something happened, but it's also made me want to keep the car. It was an impulse buy when I was 16 because it looked cool, but since I've gotten into the German Car scene with some of my friends I always wanted to sell the 6s and make some VAG my first project car. But with the recent events and talk of a discounted body kit and paint job I think the 6s will finally be my first project car.

So far the mods done to the car by the previous owner include:
K&N 2.75" Typhoon CAI
Unknown CBE
VIS Racing Cyber Body Kit (Half-Assed and Cracked)
Cut Stock Springs :angry:

Now that I have some money I'm thinking of replacing some of these mods and doing them right, as well as doing some of my own. Starting with some springs or coilovers.

But the one thing I have no knowledge of for my car is the choices for Engine Management could anyone point me in the best direction?

And I'll be sure to keep this updated as it gets moving.

Here's some pictures of the car now

def go with Justin's tuner

as for lowering..... I love my BC coilovers. bout the same price as tein basics with the dampening adjustment.

As for a body kit. I would stick to OEM and if nessacary add a BR lip. the only kit out there that doesn't look like total crap IMO is the veilside kit, but again it is your call. I would rather invest in a nice set of wheels than some body kit.....

just my 2 cents.
