hello fellow owners. just gettn my first stagea its a 99 rs4 s and wondering what mods can be done to the neo engine with out spending mega bucks. (and f*kn it up) Im thinking maybee puting on a exhaust, front mount, bov and uping the psi a notch and then a good tune but this alone is costly. if anyone has done some budget mods and can help me out with some info that would be much appreciated.

Yeah, you should be able ot find the paint code on your VIN plate under the bonnet. A Nissan dealer or any automotive paint shop should be able to provide some paint for touch-up use. If they don't have it, they should be able to mix it up without any hassles.
