Default 2016 A5 too slow

So, I have had a few Audi Cars. I just purchased a used 2016 Audi A5 with the 220hp motor. This will my my daily driver. So, I don't have to spend hours researching, what is the best way to increase HP on the cheap. Figure I have like 1k. I also want to replace the grill. Any help is appreciated.

Tune it. Easy bump in HP that will make a big difference in the way the car feels.

Recommendations for tune? I am in Calif, and we only have 91 octane.

APR Thank you researching now. Noticed tonight this car does not have a dipstick, just a plug. Can I buy a dip stick? I would like to check oil levels.

you can check the oil through the MMI. I think your owner's manual can walk you through it. I did buy a dipstick for my Q5 but don't recall the vendor.

I like APR. Lots of other good choices too though...

Really enjoying this car a lot. I found two repair shops near my office that work on late model Audi models: Strom Motorsports and Bullet Performance. I will be stopping by these shops next week.

I put a APR stage 1 with direct air intake in a 2014 A5 - gained 95 HP on 93 octane.. Night and day differences, actually faster acceleration than the S5.
