Post Cold Air Intake Pros/Cons

Hello, I just recently purchased a 2015 Accord Sport 2.4L. I would like to add some performance with out breaking the bank. I was looking into a throttle body spacer and a K&N Cold air intake. Please let me know your opinions and the pros/cons to these items. This is my 1st Honda ever. Feedback appreciated

Congrats on the purchase, and welcome to the forum. I've read posts here that cold air intakes do little or nothing for performance. Seems their sole function is to make the engine sound powerful.
That seems to be somewhat the same with throttle body spacers.

Cold-air intakes are negated by the fact that Honda has coolant lines going to the throttle body, to keep it nice and warm. Yes, you can bypass that but I guess I don't see the point of the whole exercise.
