I just ordered an A5 1.8T and I've been looking at some mods. I found ECU tuning from ABT and wimmers. Are there any exhaust mods out? Also for body kits I saw that lltek has some stuff and ABT as well, are there any other brands to look for? This is my first Audi so I am not familiar with the tuners.

The 1.8T I had in the TT was a very remappable engine and plenty of tuners out there. I do not know how close this new 1.8T is to the old one or if it is just a ECU thing. Regards body kits hold on as the car gets more popular more companys will be producing body kits exhaust mods and the like

Maybe we should organise a group chipping/dyno run type thing (wouldnt have to be just the 1.8's) to get a discount. I dont know if they still do this but when I had my golf they were organised from time to time via golf forums. I have no idea what garages are best to go through though. I stumbled across these guys 'http://www.vag-tuner.com' via another thread on this site somewhere and they have done a lot good things with the 2.0TFSI so some stuff may go on the 1.8TFSI? (Im no engineer) They seem to know what there doing anyway. I will be very interested in organising something as soon as i get my motor, depending on the demand.
What do you think?
You dont need body kits with the A5, its a stunning motor and doesnt need any silly plastic bumpers. All the stares will be amazed by the car without a body kit. With a body kit they will stare and think what the hell has this prick done to that beatiful car, hopefully throwing eggs and solid blunt objects in the process. :D

Sorry that was a bit harsh, each to their own though. ;) :p

The new 1.8 TFSI is very different from the previous 1.8T Audi produced, however i'm sure plenty can be done to it. I'm sure s re-map could get another 25bhp out of it without any problems.

I know Rieger do a body kit that is suitable for the A5 1.8T. They have 2 dealers in Turkey.
