how do you like the ASP pipes? i had their catless down pipes matched up to a UUC VM3. loud car, but so worth it. did you ever make it to their shop? might have be a bit of a drive from CT, but if you do, you have to go for a ride in mark's R32. i was down there while they were doing some of the last tuning for the turbo kit they put out. that thing was no joke fast. this was before they had put in the BBK, scared the shit out of me, all that go with no stop makes for some white knuckles.
I was sort of in the same boat before picking up my S4. I was looking to move on from my E46 and was considering a new 335, but I ended up deciding against getting into new car payments for the time being and picked up the B5. Used the money I saved to go stage 3.

As for my ASP exhaust... LOVE IT. To me it sounds just perfect. I won't post the vid in JP's thread, but here's a quick video clip if you're interested. I did however decide against their downpipes, and I ended up going with 034's 3" DPs instead since I liked their design a bit better. The UUC VM3 is another exhaust I love, pretty rare too. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make it out to ASP yet. I gotta find time one of these days. Okay, back on topic now...

official update for today: There is a chance the car will be fully put back together by EOD tomorrow (tuesday), but most likely it'll be ready on wednesday. Then I'm going to put 75-100 "break-in" miles on the turbos before getting back on the dyno.
