Default 2009 audi a4 2.0t performance help!!!

hey whats going on everyone, I've recently purchased a 09 audi a4 2.0t, and i was wondering if i can get some advice on improving the cars performance. as of now i only have 600$ to spend so i was wondering is there a good muffler i can put on the car to change up sound and performance? also a cold air intake crossed my mind as well, for now. is this a good way to start off?
last thing!! please recommend a website for the parts as well!! please!! and thank you guys so much!!!

Honestly, no. the exhaust and intake wont add more than 10hp and youll lose a little bit on the low end. the best and quickest upgrade is the APR ECU Flash. I only use 93 octane in my 09 a4 so i went with the 93 octance stage I flash. its like 599 and adds about 30hp and 60-70tq. you will notice a huge difference in your cars speed and performance. I peeled off the lot and was instantly in awe at the upgraded pick up. it also helps get you better mpg scores. im getting about 3mpg more which may not seem like much but its about 45 extra miles per tank. It gets rid of any turbo lag and just makes your car pounce. highway merging its extremely helpful too.

Would that void warranty? The cars still under dealership warranty and I purchased the extended warranty as well. Plus Apr is expensive as Hell I was looking over there prices. Overall how do u feel about awe tuning? I was looking to purchase somethin from them. ive heard quiet good reviews about awe tuning

APR has a special right now on their flash for stage I its only 549. adds 40hp and 75tq. I did mine yesterday and this thing is a beast. youll feel like you have a completely new car. no other modification will give you results like an ecu flash will. mufflers and intakes wont do anything noticeable.

The K&N intake sounds like **** @ low rpm on my 2012 A4...sounds like a loose belt squealing but its just the turbo. Once you get @ higher rpm it sounds amazing. IMO it doesn't sound like an Audi! So I pulled it , If you have $450-500 to throw around I recommend The Carbonio intake...looks and sounds Great.

I'm late to the party here, but the absolute best way to get improved performance out of an '09 2.0T A4 is to get a software flash from STaSIS, GIAC or APR. If keeping warranty intact is a priority, STaSIS is the way to go, otherwise go for GIAC or APR. Any of the three will be at or under $600.00 and will deliver a more noticeable gain than exhaust, intake, test pipe, etc.
