    -Pollen filter-standard
    -Air filter-standard (ill be getting induction or uprated pannel weni have abit more ££££)

    I normally use a combination of GSF or OEM parts... oil wise go for 5W40 fully synth (I use Quantum Platinum), filters from GSF who also normally sell the sump drain plug for a quid...

    Spark plug wise use NGK's... GSF supply Bosch super 4's normally but you can get platinum or irridium 6's on ebay or from Sparkplugs UK NGK Champion Denso Sparkplug, Glowplug and Lambda Sensors...

    Platinums are PFR6Q and irridiums are BKR6EIX
