I guess I should update this with the latest:
Blacked out the chrome trim
Installed carbon fiber mirrors
Installed carbon fiber front splitter
I have a carbon fiber hood that I ordered a few weeks ago that was on backorder, but should be in sometime next week.
Update on this: I ordered a lightweight flywheel/stg2 endurance clutch kit from ECS that should be arriving this Friday along with an ECS carbon fiber diffuser that a buddy of mine will be installing at his shop over this coming weekend.
I'm scheduled to drop off my car at the other shop for...
I hear ya. Just stating where I stand on the subject in case anyone's expecting anything in that regard as soon as I pick up the car. I might take it to the 1/4 someday, but I worry about the kind of carnage a VHT-prepped surface can do to a car.

I can claim an 11-second car all day, but it doesn't mean I am an 11-second driver. :p
It's more like 3800lbs or so. 4K+ weight is for the Cabriolet models.
Here's APR's S4 project car with basically the same mods I'm getting (except for exhaust, which I've explained, and TCU, which is a transmission software upgrade, since mine's a manual):
Curb weights between S5 Coupe and...
Welp, I put down a deposit with a local Audi tuning shop to do all this work for me (relevant sections of the estimate):
I put 50% down, and as soon as the APR Ultracharger comes in, they're going to call and schedule a time for me to drop this baby off for some...
