VW sport suspension is just Eibach springs, it is about the same price for the springs, but they will charge a lot to install. The muffler is a waste of money, get a real exhaut

I've got the VW/Eibach springs. They're nice for a "sporty" ride but are a compromise between performance, looks and comfort. As for exhaust, one combo I've heard of is the TDI mid-pipe with the VW/Remus muffler. That has been reported to give 10hp on a dyno (use the search).

I had an aftermarket exhaust on my car since 2 weeks after I bought my car. Check with the tech guys at your dealership (hopefully they are cool) and ask them if it will void. My warranty wasn't affected at all.
For the money, there are better exhausts out there.
Spring have me interested in the topic though. Also, a K&N panel filter will not affect the warranty, and give your engine some breathing to go with your exhaust.

Sometimes they will use a K&N to void warranty on MAF and other items because "they let in too much dirt, etc."

Any exhaust after the cat shouldn't void any warranty at all.

Im in the same position as you are dude. I hear that all bolt-on's are ok, but chipping a car will definetly void the warranty on the engine. Im getting suspension first, then maybe change the tail and head lights. The only thing that I would do to the engine is put a nice carbonio intake in. My two cent.
