headers and matching tune.

That is really all you need. The intake is meh

but what do I know, I spend all too much money on custom headlights that break after 3 months

AFE and AA are the two main options. One is catted the other is not.

I'd beef up suspension as well, personally.

I would seriously consider replacing the run-flat tires with a quality performance tire like the Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

Whatever you decide to do, please don't add the Boost Addiction's differential lock down brace. Don't ask and I did warn you.

Xi has nothing to do with your intake manifold. If you bought it in ny, it's an n51 which has the 3 stage.

AA Headers are what I'm talking about

Yes. But you need the tune too-> to take away the check engine light

Chances are the design is fer shit, very few can properly design with LEDs at high power, both electrically and thermally. And mechanically for that matter, a car's a high vibration environment so wires and connectors take a beating, etc.
