things you can do and things you should do for maintenance with a side of fun.
also if you live in a hot climate or just drive it hard i would think some of these are good to do.

- dsg csf cooler. im looking into this item
- csf also can be used on the other side of the dsg. i read its for the coolant.
- intercooler upgrade
- radiator upgrade
- oil cooler
- change and flush coolant. if its a daily and you run it hard, in the heat most of the time, and it has a lot of miles annually i would do the flush each year.
- do your oil change.
- air filter change. this can also be hard on the engine if its dirty.
- spark plug change. im looking into the ngk ruthenium myself.
- do an injector clean. i dont think they are super expensive to buy so replacements might also be an option to be on the safe side. preventative is alway the theme with audi.
- for fun you an also upgrade the ignition coil packs from ARP. might be worth while do this.
