    if you are looking for more power then yes, a downpipe & a tune would be next on your list.

    Congrats & Welcome.

    It depends on what you are going to be doing with the car.

    I'd say suspension over power mods. I went Stage 2 (AP + DP) and I wish I went suspension mods first (springs, tires, sways)

    There is ALOT of useful information on here that you should start to read to get an idea.

    You might get a bunch of crap for going with an 08. Lots of hate and distain for them. I personally don't have issues with them as i have one myself. So, congrats!

    What's next depends on your goals. since asking about downpipe i'm assuming you mean power wise.

    Stage 1: ECU reflash (easiest method is Cobb AP, but it costs)

    Stage 2: ECU reflash
    TBE exhaust catted or catless (downpipe in either bellmouth or divorced)

    From there it's pretty much upgraded turbos and what not.

    If you run a downpipe you have to have some form of EM.
