Eric, ride in my car and maybe you'll get an urge.

I would say a Quaife or maybe a break upgrade.

If you want to spend big bucks....  turbo upgrade.

Or Alcon BBK, they are matched better for the GTI/Jetta brake master cylinder (so I am told)

I used to be really into trying to save up for a supercharger (I have a 2.8 liter) and things like that. Several track sessions have informed me that a big brake kit can make all the difference, when even 100 hp won't.

Driver's school?  Track time?

I am all about an evenly balanced car.  It sounds like you have dones some good things in the performance category.  If you aren't interested in a tirbo or brake upgrade, how about some subtle cosmetic mods.  A rear lip spoiler front spoiler or something else along those lines.  Maybe a stereo upgrade?

Pat i plan on joining one of the track days come sepember to get some more seat time.  I just wanted to get the suspension and brakes set first.

Winston  - I pretty much decided that i will put the Audi Votex kit on come April/May of next year once the roads are pretty clean. I already have the rear trunk spoiler.

I think i am pretty much done for now i guess..

Well you have a killer suspension set up, why not get the StaSis (Alcon) brakes for it so your car is all dialed in handling wise.

I won't track the car enough to justify that kind of brake setup.. Plus that is just to much $$...

if you really don't plan on tracking the car... then what about body work or HIDs

yeah that is what i am thinking.  I 'may' end up doing a STasis brake kit eventually.. But i already have HID (factory option) and i will get the Votex kit come next spring (after the roads are clear). I think i might eb done modding for a little while. I just need to drive it harder and hit up a couple track days with it.
