first off I would like to say I am rather new to this modding GTA V thing.
I did all that : Quick start guide to modding Grand Theft Auto V but after I installed a mod from this site the game will pull a huge update - first time I thought must be a regular one but no after installing the mod again the same thing happening again.
So I assume I did something wrong.....
The mod I am talking about is this one : https://de.gta5-mods.com/vehicles/2017-police-audi-a4-els-pack
and it states in the install section further down to do this : Audi A4 (Marked)
and that is wher I installed this but for some reason this seems to be wrong because the game installs always about 2.some gigs and puts the original files in there again.
So what did I miss during the initial setup?
Edit : I stepped on to a video tutorial and there the guy states that I have to put the full "updates" folder in to my mods folder in order to keep the original files clean ... the instructions here only state that I need only to copy the update.rpf there... so whats the proper way to do this?

Read more carefully you did wrong all is written here thanks to @ikt : https://forums.gta5-mods.com/topic/14693/quick-start-guide-to-modding-grand-theft-auto-v
GTA V mods roughly exist in two distinct categories: resource mods and scripts. You'll need a couple of things to get this to work!
ScriptHookV enabled scripts for GTA V.
OpenIV enables modifying archives and adding archives.
ScriptHookVDotNet enables scripts written in .NET languages. It relies on ScriptHookV.
Download the archives or installers from the websites.
Installation: Basically just follow the instructions!
ScriptHookV: Open the archive, extract the files inside the bin folder to your GTA V root.
ScriptHookVDotNet: Open the archive, extract ScriptHookVDotNet.asi and ScriptHookVDotNet2.dll to your GTA V root.
OpenIV: Run the installer.
ScriptHookVDotNet has its scripts inside a separate folder inside the GTA V root folder, so create a scripts folder in there. .dll and .cs scripts you download will go in here.
OpenIV needs some additional setup. Run the program and point it to your GTA V directory if necessary. Go to Tools -> ASI Manager and install ASI Loader and OpenIV.ASI if they aren't installed already. You'll also want to set up a mods folder. This keeps your original game files clean! As a start, put your update.rpf in the mods folder. You'll need to edit it anyway." *******
