The Fsport intake will take away sound not add sound. The factory IS350 intake has a sound generator on it to give the car a tuned intake sound. The Fsport intake forces the removal of that...

Yes the sizes are the same because they are actual IS350 calipers. They are just remanufactured. They should come with a warranty. If and when the seals finally wear out you can just replace them...

They will work but I might suggest rock auto where you can get loaded IS350 calipers for $500 per pair or you can get a pair of calipers without pads for $260 per pair and get a good set of stoptech...

I noticed you have an Fsport intake. You may want to real quickly check the MAF connector as well. Let us know what it was. Interested to find out.

1. In reality that level of runout is within spec for most rotors. They tried to get it better to hope the noise went away but the real cause of the noise is the more aggressive pads they use in...

No, it's not common but it could be as simple as a loose gas cap. If it doesnt go away after tightening and if you are obsessive and have to know the code yourself (I admit, I am) you can get it...

A gauze/cotton style filter can flow a little more than paper. It also lets more dirt/silicates in the engine. The 1hp difference would give you zero noticeable power gain. People put in a panel...

It sounds like you are describing a brake "squeal" as opposed to any kind of suspension "creaking". This is common. This is especially common when very lightly dragging the brake and especially...

For performance? Stock is a sealed cold air intake. Hard to beat.

For sound? Stock has a noise maker on it factory tuned for a nice sound. Hard to beat.

I agree that the S4 is just a better car. It is a true AWD car (not front wheel drive biased) and the 3.0T engine is just a monster. Living at altitude the benefit will be that much greater.

I would agree that the wheel width is really too wide for our cars. A 10.5" rim makes the rear wheel look like it sticks out. It definitely looks aftermarket and not quite right.

I would absolutely not pay the $2400 for the warranty. The car should come CPO with a 100K mile warranty. If it is not CPO, they should not be charging CPO kind of money. And in that case I still...

Slotted rotors can sometimes be a pain to keep from vibrating. Its very common to get pad deposits in there. I'd try a set of blanks and see if that cures it. You can get a pair for about $50 to...
