    Resonator delete opinions??

    Been looking at getting a resonator delete for my s1 as it seems like the cheapest exhaust mod that will offer decent sound improvements. Has anyone here had this done? And if yes, what are the pros/cons? Ideally would like to keep my warranty if that is possible as well.

If...

    I was on the s1 facebook group and someone mentioned something about removing something plastic from the standard air box. Didn't really say anything else about it. Does anyone know anything more about it and whether it's safe and does it give you a better intake noise? I can't really do any...

    Advice on engine break-in?

    I've been researching the engine break in a lot recently as I'm only a week or two away from getting my s1. Having never owned a car straight from the factory this is all new stuff for me.
