    Looking for advise on first mod to WS6

    What do you guys think should be my first mod? I have $350 to spend and the car is completly stock except for SLP lid. I was leaning towards buying a Predator tuner, any advise welcome.

    subframe connectors

    defenitely subframe connectors. this sets your car up for any upgrades you do in the future. the stock power in our cars is already enough to make the body flex. the wide tires and suspension probably already give you good traction, so i would hold off on tires for now. next i would start saving for an upgraded rear end. my t/a was bone stock when i blew mine out. believe me, its just a matter of time. id go with a moser 12 bolt or a 9in.

    The best parts about SFC's is they actually give you a place to jack the car up without messing up the unibody.

    However, if you have an M6 with a stock shifter, I say get a short shifter first. Thats the best mod you can do for overall driveability, makes the car so much better to drive, and significantly reduces the risk of missing gears/damaging the transmission due to shift fork overextension. I highly reccommend the Pro 5.0, they can be had brand new on eBay for about $175 shipped

    still think sfc's

    a lot of it is your opinion. but body flex is only preventable with sfc's. youll start having problems with doors closing if you get too much power.i reccomend the boxed type. shift kits are good as well, but that would not be my first. but its not a bad decision either way. just dont be that guy that starts with a supercharger without doing anything else. then save for a moser 12bolt or 9in. rear end. its only a matter of time before it blows. do you have a m6 or an a4?
