First off thanks to all the guys who posted info on cost factors and maintenance. It has helped me make a great purchase. So I bought a 2009 with 3900 miles in super silver with mats, carbon fiber lip and bumper.

Having some great cars in the past, this car is one that is everything and more it claims to be. I traded in my 2012 A7 prestige I only had it for 8 months. It was a huge loss, but worth it. I love the new Audi's; going from a S65 2009 to the Audi left me needing some speed.

I am going to Cobb tune it and do an exhaust but the greedy SS or Ti have a huge jump in price. Aside from weight why would I but the Ti system?

Also I am a Farmers Insurance Agent in Southern California, and my insurance rate was about the same as my Audi. So if any of you guys need a good Agent or a price quote just PM me.

I did pay alot for the car, so can anyone guess what I paid? Just checking if I got an ok deal.

With 3900 miles I would guess about 68K-71K. A great price IMO would be about 64-65.

Congratz and welcome to the club! 3900 miles is super low for a 2009!

I would not jump into the exhaust as the OEM exhaust is quite good already, save that money for the following:

New unresonated midpipe - $700
Used Cobb Accessport - $600
New 2012 Inlet pipes - $370
Intakes $500 - $695

I think you should start with the above mods and see if you still want it louder or faster, unless you got deep pocket :)

Yes the 09s seem to be holding their prices very well. Congrats on your purchase....unless you are planning on tracking the car the list of mods posted above will probably get you your desired results

I got the car for $69,988 asking was 74,998. Later that week I saw one with 500 miles more for 75000, and one for 77,999 with almost the same. The cars list very high in So Cal for some readon an Connell Nissan is looks to be the leader in high price around here.

Exhaust alone: 10+ hp

The above list:  100+ hp

To be honest, i'm no expert. But after lurking this forum for months and learning from the great guys here, I think those are the perfect list of mods for beginners who want to be a lot faster than stock without worrying about pushing the limit too much or other annoying things like bad smells in cabin, soots buildups, or drone on highway. Mine has the above list except for the intakes which will be installed this weekend, and i'm very happy to drive it to work everyday.

Also, before doing any mods, bring the car to a Nissan dealer to fix any outstanding recalls for free to save yourself from trouble.

PS: I just saved you a bunch of research time & money, now how do you save me money on insurance lolz :). I'm currently paying $580 / 6 months full coverage.

Pwjdm exhaust is loud, make sure it is something you can live with on a daily basis if you are DD your gtr.
Sound is great from what I have heard online. It is the deepest sounding exhaust I think I have heard so far.

Ah, so you want it LOUD :). I haven't heard it in real life, but from my "research", it's 1 of the 2 loudest exhausts currently available. But it has some fitting problem which requires some trimming. How loud were your previous cars!?

Well, it's all up to you to decide. If you get the Password JDM exhaust, then get the Resonated midpipe to tone it down a little. Also, you might need to trim your valuable carbon fiber undertray to make it fit, which cant be undone :). Someone can correct me if Password JDM has already fixed the fitting & missing hanger problem.

Weight is the only reason why you'd get a titanium exhaust but in reality unless you're racing your car a lot you're better off saving your money and getting a ss one. Also if you want loud get electric cut outs on your car, that would make the car very loud.

The rear section exhaust is mostly for show until you go upgraded turbos. It might net you a few extra ponies at stock power levels but the 3-5000 dollars can be much better spent. Try downpipes, midpipe, Cobb AP and 3 inch intakes. Best money I've ever spent on a car.

Placed an order today for the JDM with Resonated midpipes and Cobb with custom tune. I will play with that set up for awhile, and if I feel the need for more speed, i'll do intake and down pipes. Thanks for the info. I'll get a photo up but it's just a 09 in super silver, lots of photos up of that.
